Let's officially designate 'Highway of Heroes'

In Ontario, when a Canadian soldier dies for his country in Afghanistan they touch Canadian soil at Canadian Forces Base Trenton. From there, a funeral procession leaves the base and heads to Toronto, Ontario taking our departed heroes to the Centre for Forensic Sciences. Along the 172km path of Highway 401 people fill the overpasses to show their support, waving Canadian flags and signs, in a sort of paying their respects to the fallen and their families.

It's been unofficially dubbed the "Highway of Heroes" and I personally would love for an official naming of the 401, from Trenton to Toronto down to the Don Valley Parkway "The Highway of Heroes". It's already called that to the thousands of people who line the bridges along the way and it should be remembered as such in the future for generations to gather and pay their respects.

The final decision is the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and i have contacted them about this. Inspiration to make this petition by "CF Enthusiast" from army.ca. Information provided by Pete Fisher Article and i don't wish to take credit for his information, just trying to get the ball rolling :) Thank you for your time.
