I am quite sure they are all dead. I seem to recall reading a newspaper article in the mid 2000's claiming that the last Canadian WW1 veteran had died, it was shortly after rememberance day that year. So I was correct, I did a search and found an online article, not nearly as detailed as the newspaper article I read, but it will have to do. http://ca.altermedia.info/histoire/last-canadian-ww1-veteran-dies_2308.html Here is the final one, she didn't see any action in the war and was not born in Canada, but she was most certainly the last one to die, only a couple of months ago... http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/08/30/2350861.htm
