"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."

Steven Rose Ottawa ON My Great Grandfather was a WW1 veteran. When he died there were still pieces of shrapnel in his head. The great risk and suffering he and his generation endured must be acknowledged by our generation as they faught lived and died in those terrible battles for us. They were thinking 100yrs ahead, it would be remiss and shameful for the Federal Gov't to not hold a state funeral for the last Great W
