"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."

David Manveiler Winnipeg MB This is an honor that must happen. I am the son of a living WW11 Vet and feel that all those who served do not rececive proper recognition. I sincerely hope that our political leaders will step up and do the right thing. Thanks for leading this great cause.
Leo Chisholm Antigonish, NS pleased to be a part of this.

Jim McDougall Toronto ON
Heather Bussey Toronto ON This should be a no-brainer. And it shouldn't be for the last one, as if it were a lottery. Anyone who makes it to 100+ after serving in such a horrible war deserves state recognition.
Summer Cazabon Windsor ON I will not forget, I am 11yrs old and I thank everyone now and then for the fight for my freedom. Thank you vets!
Dale Whitham Winnipeg MB It is only fitting that we take time to pause and reflect on the passing of an entire generation that fought for our Canadian beliefs. At that moment, the torch for which they held high, will finally be released, lest we forget.
John BYRNE Mount Forest ON Let Us Not Forget and remember to pay the ultimate respect to those that have given the final sacrifice.
Trevor Denis Ottawa ON
Sandra Swartz London ON
Norma Forbes Dieppe NB If these veterans had not made the sacrifices which they did we would not be living with the freedom we sometime take for granted. We owe them our respect and gratitude
