Canada's Last Great War Veteran

Please take a moment and sign the petition calling for the government to provide a state funeral for WW1 war vet.

“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.”

	   				The Dominion Institute will send the petition on behalf of its signatories  to the Prime Minister of Canada on December 11, 2006.
