2. Fishing tragedy: Police in Quebec have identified the adult victim of a fishing incident that claimed five lives over the weekend, most of them children.

3. Strained relations: Newly released documents say the intelligence community's relationship with its key watchdog has been particularly strained over the last year due to a 'level of resistance' to scrutiny.

4. Wildfires update: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to provide an update on the wildfires that have forced thousands of people from their homes and caused widespread property damage in several provinces.

5.
