"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."

Hal Babcock Fredericton NB Thanks you for carrying this forward and keeping the "remembrance and honor" alive!
 
Christa Humphrey Edson AB
 
Marie Atkinson Nepean ON Great idea!
 
Beatrice Weston London ON
 
Lorraine Garneau Ottawa ON Grat idea--well deserved. My Grandfather was injured at Vimy Ridge and saw how WWI affected his life.
 
Andrew Weston London ON
 
Mark Krahn Winnipeg MB We cannot forget the sacrifices these men/women made.
 
Aaron Babcock Dartmouth NS I feel this would be an appropriate gesture of real nationhood as it would affirm Canada's national identity and underscore the needs for us to continue to remain a committed partner in the security of the world.
 
James Weston London ON
 
Kevin Logan Hamilton ON We have forgotten enough already, and ignored even more.
 
Diane and Rob Lamontagne Orleans ON I think we should go one step further, and embalm/preserve the first two, providing the state funeral for all three together. Family involvement would be required, but in their position, I would feel it was an honour.
 
Ian McGregor Windsor ON They will not be forgotten. Please give the state funeral for this family!
 
Glenda Weston London ON These men have lived this long and deserve this honour!!!
 
Simon Rolfe Ottawa ON I fully support this idea!
 
Martin Foster London ON
 
Caroline Rodgers Richmond ON I think it is only right and a fitting thing to do
