"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."

Pierre Savoie Toronto ON Executive Director Griffiths was being an idiot when he said according to newspapers that "he envisions a state funeral being religious, held in a church according to the denomination of the veteran. "We in the 21st century live in a very agnostic or a very secular society but I think a state funeral would be very important to capture the religious undertone of the First World War," he said.
