"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 Modeland Calgary AB We should always remember why we have the freedom we have and what sacrifices were made to allow this freedom.The supreme sacrifice was made so we may enjoy what we have today so let's show the appreciation, respect, dignity,gratitude and honor that is richly deserved by those who gave their all, so that we may enjoy our freedom today.
 
Roger Guertin Otawa ON Canada has a duty to honor the last Veterans of WWI. They remind us of their valour and sacrifice far more than a prime Minister or Gov General do. It is way past due, the time for a country-wide State Funeral and rememberance ceremony. This should be done with the maximum publicity possible.
