Government of Canada (PMO and Governor General): Hold a State Funeral for Stompin' Tom Connors


Stompin' Tom Connors is a Canadian icon, a true patriot, and a musical ambassador for our great nation. His contributions to Canadian culture, patriotism, and international goodwill on behalf of Canada are of great significance to Canadians at home and abroad. As such, he deserves a State Funeral (or permanent public national memorial) to celebrate his life and his contributions to Canada.

Letter to
Office of the Prime Minister Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Office of the Governor General His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston
Please Hold a State Funeral for Stompin' Tom Connors

Stompin' Tom Connors is a Canadian icon, a true patriot, and a musical ambassador for our great nation. His contributions to Canadian culture, patriotism, and international goodwill on behalf of Canada are of great significance to Canadians at home and abroad.

As such, he deserves a State Funeral to celebrate his life and his contributions to Canada.

In the event a State Funeral is not possible for logistical or privacy reasons, we request that his life be memorialized in a state-sponsored and nationally recognized manner by the commission and public display of a Stompin' Tom statue or plaque with all of the ceremony befitting his legacy.
