Canada's Last WWI Veteran Dies


John Babcock, Canada’s last known First World War veteran, has died. John Babcock was 109 years old.

John Babcock was ready to fight in the Great War so we can live in a country where the great national stress is a shootout victory over Switzerland in Olympic men's hockey.

Thanks, John, for being one of the 650,000 men and women Canada recruited to serve in the “war to end all wars.”
