1. Funeral for Moncton police today

The city of Moncton has opened its doors for some 7,000 police officers and others expected to attend the funerals of three RCMP officers shot to death in an ambush last week.

The funeral procession starts between 10:45 and 11 a.m. ADT. QMI Agencyís Joe Warmington is in Moncton today, so check back later for coverage from the scene.

Messages of condolence can be sent here.


2. Rangers have one chance left

The New York Rangers fared no better against the Kings last night than they have in the previous two games, setting Los Angeles up for a breezy 4-0 Stanley Cup win.

As QMI Agencyís Rob Longley points out, the 1942 Maple Leafs are the only NHL team to bounce back after losing the first three games of the series.

If the Kings can pull it off again in Game 4 tomorrow night, it will be the teamís second Stanley Cup win in the last two seasons.

3. Fugitive kangaroo found

A missing kangaroo hopping around Saint-Lazare, Que., was found yesterday.

On Sunday evening, Mirka escaped from the farm where she was being temporarily kept as a therapy pet.

She was found in a yard around 5:30 p.m. yesterday.

In other Quebec escapee news, three prisoners that broke out of jail with the aid of a helicopter over the weekend still have not been found.


4. Driver in Tracy Morgan crash hadnít slept

More details are emerging about the horrific crash that killed comedy writer James McNair and injured several others on Saturday in New Jersey, including comedian Tracy Morgan.

The driver of the Walmart tractor-trailer that rear-ended the limousine had not slept in more than 24 hours at the time of the crash, according to a criminal complaint.

Kevin Roper is facing a charge of vehicular homicide and three counts of injury by auto.

Morgan is in critical but stable condition.


5. Locks of love damage bridge

Love hurts. And so can love locks, if youíre a bridge.

The thousands of locks on the Pont des Arts bridge over the Seine river in Paris caused part of the railing to collapse on Sunday.

The bridge had to be temporarily evacuated.
