"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."

Dr. Nancy J. Vivian Burlington ON Those who served in the First World War richly deserve this final tribute. My parents and my grandparents, were they still here, would likewise urge the Prime Minister to sanction this cause. Everyone should read the book "Hell's corner: an illustrated history of Canada's Great War, 1914-1918" by historian J.L. Granatstein.
Marilyn Sills Burlington ON My grandfather was in the first world war, so this would mean alot to me.

Maureen Khan North Vancouver BC We have to stay in Iraq because if we don't democracy will lose to Islamofascism. A state funeral will show our fighting men that we value their courage and heroism.
Peggy Andrews Brampton ON I think this is the best idea ever. Honouring the "common man" for a change, the ones that did the actual work and made the ultimate sacrifices during and after the war. By the way are there any women left?. That would be nice if something was done for them as well. They also invested a great part of their lives for freedom and often go unnoticed.
