Is it possible to share a ‘canned response’ within a google apps account so that a number of users can use the same response?

If so, how?

I added a signature to my gmail. When I add a canned response, it also adds a signature, so now there are two signatures. How to avoid?

Don’t include your signature in the canned response.
