Pope names Canadian as new cardinal

Vancouver Sun

Pope Benedict XVI on Friday named, “with great joy,” a Canadian and 21 others to the College of Cardinals.

The Archbishop of Toronto, Thomas Collins, said he was honoured to be named as a member of the Catholic Church’s inner circle.

“I am grateful for the trust he has placed in me, and recognize this honour as a sign of his esteem for the role of Canada and of the Archdiocese of Toronto in the universal Church,” Collins said in a statement.
