"We the undersigned feel enormous gratitude for the sacrifice made by all the Canadian Armed Forces through the ages in defence of this country and its values; acknowledge the very special nature of the sacrifice made by those who fought in the First World War in appalling conditions and with terrible loss of life; note that only three First World War veterans remain; and urge the Prime Minister that their sacrifice, and all of those they served with under arms from 1914-1918, be celebrated by offering a state funeral to the family of the last veteran of the First World War resident in Canada."

Laurie Grahn Hay Lakes AB A very important tribute must be planned for the last WW1 veteran. A state funeral would only be fitting as it would continue to keep the public thinking about and honouring those who fought for freedom.

Stanley fajans Richmond Hill ON If we can spend time, effort and taxpayer dollars on "citizens of convenience" taking advantage of dual passports, then we should surely be able to offer recognition to true and loyal patriots who loved both their country and their fellow man so loyally as to put their lives on the line for them. Thank them all for our precious freedom.
