TORONTO - Darwin has a new home.

The dapper monkey, who became an overnight sensation after his journey across a North York Ikea parking lot, is now home at the Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland.

Sherri Delaney, co-founder of the farm, about 100 km north of Toronto, said it was created for monkeys like Darwin because of the booming exotic pet trade in Canada.
