"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."

Robert Waywood Saskatoon SK It is a shame that our government honors our veterans with "The Year of the Veteran" but will not have state funerals for the last surviving members of the Great War, the war that was suppose to end all wars. A tragedy for all Canadians

Tobi-Lynn Erb Saint John NB I think its a great idea to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by our war veterns to our young people.
 
Stephen Turner Kitchener ON Is it because, one would argue that today Canadians are too consumed in the day to day rat race to stop and remember? The truth is the outcome of our veterans efforts seem to be overshadowed by the rate race we have invented since. All our Veterans deserve our greatest respect.
