Canadian WW1 vets. 3 left

Here is a site that I would hope that Canadians would want to sign. (a petition that takes about 30 seconds)

"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."

Wow! The USA offers a funeral to all Veterans, with "Taps" on bugle and 21 gun salute, flag to drape the coffin, and honor guard to ceremoniously lay the
Veteran to rest.

I'm surprised Canada doesn't do that!
