"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."

Laura Yates North Vancouver BC I think that this petition is asking for a state funeral for only the last veteran, I think at this point that all three of them should have a state funeral. the world has changed so much and so rapidly I am sure that sometimes these last three veterans wonder what it was all for. It seems like so many people today no longer value the sacrifce made by those great people who fought for us and

Debra Ennis Ottawa ON Each year more and more Canadian families and children are living lives with no knowledge of WWI or WWII. Although we all wish that war did not exist and that this type of violence can be forgotten forever; we must never forget those who have witnessed, suffered and fought in defense of those who are now forgetting them.
