"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."

Leslie Farrington Ancaster ON Wonderful idea. It becomes a state funeral for every person who died during the wars
Sandra Dunbar St. Thomas ON I strongly believe that Canada should horour the last WW1 veteran when he dies with a State Funeral.
Alex Nuta Lasalle QC Most people have already forgotten all about the war. If for no other reason than that, Canada should make the effort of a state funeral if only to remind everyone that these people put their lives on the line for us to be free.

Ross Colwell Winnipeg MB How can Canada not have a state funeral for our last vet of the great war? The end of an era, it must be honoured
Linda Holden Brantford ON I think it is a great idea and we shouldn't have to petition to have it done.
Ashley Woods Elora ON It is the least we can di for this veteran. Canadians are not aware of the sacrifices that our men and women made in WW1, WW11 and Korea. Our schools should have to teach this history to our citizens.
