"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."

Eric H Devlin Perth ON Rather than just the last one, I would suggest that all three of these last veterans should be accorded state funeral (individually if appropriate). It is only fitting that such persons be recognized as the last of a breed that surmounted many diffuculties and are a credit to Canada.
