The B.C. Catholic has coverage of Cardinal Thomas Collins homecoming trip to Edmonton. Canada's newest cardinal served "the city of champions" as archbishop in the past. The Western Catholic Reporter's Chris Miller has the story from the Alberta capital:
With many others, Louise Coates stood in a long line April 13 to shake the hand of Canada’s newest cardinal.

Hearing Cardinal Thomas Collins’ homily during Mass at St. Joseph’s Basilica, seeing his warm smile and his red berretta were highlights of the evening for her.

She has always admired Collins’ modest manner and sense of humour.

“There is something very special about seeing an old friend after a long absence,” said Coates. “I’m glad he’s come back to visit us.”
