"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."

Tricia McKinnon Dartmouth NS It is an atrocity that the Government won't pay for the funeral of a WWI veteran. They have no real idea of what these people and their families went through and the horrors they witnessed. The Government should be ashamed of themselves.
