1. Trump's deadline: The U.S. House of Representatives' intelligence committee is asking the Trump administration to deliver evidence on Monday that the phones at Trump Tower were tapped during the election campaign. U.S. President Donald Trump has accused former president Barack Obama of tapping his phones, but has not substantiated those claims.
2. Tax services back online: Canadians can file their tax returns online again after the Canada Revenue Agency took the service down as a precautionary measure on Friday. A notice was posted on the agency's website through the weekend that officials detected "an internet vulnerability." Services returned to normal on Sunday.
3. First debate for would-be NDP leaders: The four NDP leadership hopefuls took to the stage Sunday for the party's first leadership debate. Much of the discussion focused on how to restore the party's spirit after it was crushed by the demotion from Official Opposition status in the 2015 federal election.
4. Flying canoe: A Newfoundland and Labrador woman is lucky to be alive after hurricane-force winds picked up a canoe from a neighbour's yard and slammed it into the side of her house hard enough to break through the wall.
5, A gift of sight: Strangers have helped a Saskatoon woman buy a special pair of glasses that allow her to view her favourite sports team.
And one more thing for "Money Monday": CTV News' chief financial commentator Patricia Lovett-Reid offers her tips on how to live on a part-time budget.
