June 19 (Reuters) - The following are the top stories from selected Canadian newspapers. Reuters has not verified these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.


* Amid questions about the Prime Minister's Office, Senate spending, Justin Trudeau's work for charities and Thomas Mulcair's run-in with Mounties on Parliament Hill, MPs have agreed to adjourn the House of Commons. ()

* After offering to pay back charities and other organizations he gave speeches to, Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau doesn't appear to have many takers. Trudeau has come under fire from Conservatives who say he had no business accepting the money - from charities in particular. ()

* Canada's tourism sector is being hit hard by a foreign-service job action. Walkouts in Canadian embassies and consulates, and especially at those with busy visa operations, have created backlogs for tourist visas - and the threat of long delays has put off many tourists thinking of travelling to Canada.
