Former cabinet minister joins race to lead Liberals

OTTAWA -- Former cabinet minister Martin Cauchon is making a late entry into the already crowded federal Liberal leadership race.

Cauchon submitted his nomination papers and $75,000 entry fee just hours before the party's registration deadline of midnight Sunday.

Assuming everything is in order and is verified by the party in the next day or two, Cauchon will become the ninth candidate seeking to lead the once-mighty party out of the political wilderness.

He is expected to officially launch his campaign later in the week, just in time for Sunday's first leadership debate in Vancouver.

Monkey abuse alleged

TORONTO -- A primate sanctuary is alleging the woman who owned a Japanese macaque known as the Ikea monkey strangled and hit the animal with a wooden spoon.

The monkey named Darwin has resided at Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland, Ont., since he was found wandering in the parking lot of a Toronto Ikea, wearing a little shearling coat.

The sanctuary is trying to block efforts by the woman who owned Darwin to get him back, and it's now alleging in recently filed court documents she abused him.

Nortel execs to learn fate

TORONTO -- Three former Nortel executives accused of orchestrating a widespread multimillion-dollar fraud will learn their fate today, nearly a year after one of the largest criminal trials in Canada's corporate history began. Ontario Superior Court Justice Frank Marrocco is set to rule on whether ex-CEO Frank Dunn, ex-CFO Douglas Beatty and ex-controller Michael Gollogly manipulated financial statements at Nortel Networks Corp. between 2002 to 2003.

The men, who each face two counts of fraud, are accused of participating in a book-cooking scheme designed to trigger $12.8 million in bonuses and stocks for themselves at the once powerful Canadian technology giant.
