"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."

Jack Siegel Toronto ON We owe everything to all of those who fought for us. The highest honours possible are the the least this nation can do for the last of these heroes. We must provide a vivid lesson to our children that while gone, they must never be forgotten.

Larry Goss Caledon East ON What a wonderful idea! My wife and I have visited the European battlefields, we've visited the European memorials, we've visited the cemeteries in Holland, Belgium and France. I lost 3 great uncles in that war, 2 of which were never found. What a deserving tribute this would be to the memory of all those men and women. The world will honour our decision. Please, let it happen!
 
Phil Dinan Keswick ON I give 100% support to this Idea,
