"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."

Jeff Hale Toronto NB Again the short sightedness of a few has resulted into another travesty. While honering our war dead is a must a state funeral for the last of the WW1 vets is a slap in the face to all the others who lost their lives. A national holiday for remembering this is the most appropriate tribute not a state funeral for one soldier. Again, time and time, its about optics, this will make the government app

Clifford Redick Masset BC
Clayton Thorkelson Ottawa ON It is necessary for us to show respect to all of the veterans (of the 2nd World War) by giving the last soldier to fall a hero's goodbye. The greatest war this era has ever seen should should be marked by the highest honor we can give them in passing.

Leslie MacMillan Winipeg MB We should all remember to give thanks each day for the freedoms we have as a result of the many sacrifices persons in the Armed Forces have made and continue to make for their fellow Canadians. Live every day like it is Remembrance Day - and if you see a member of the Military - show your appreciation and say "THANKS" from the bottom of your heart!!!

Daniel Hardy Vancovuer BC Smokey Smith, the last surviving VC-winner, was accorded a special ceremony when he passed away last year; it seems only fair to do the same for the last veteran of WW I.
