Would Brother André, an humble man, be shy to learn he made the front page of many Canadian dailies? See here.
The Calgary Herald carries a picture and this headline: "Brother André first Canadian-born man to become saint".

"From orphan to sainthood: Brother André canonized" writes the Toronto Star on its front page.

The Globe and Mail sets the tone: "Miracle man of Montreal canonized in Rome".
