Sept 6 (Reuters) - The following are the top stories from selected Canadian newspapers. Reuters has not verified these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.


** Wealth management firm Richardson GMP Ltd is on the auction block with at least one major Canadian bank, Toronto-Dominion Bank, among the bidders, according to people familiar with the sale process. TD, Canada's second-largest bank by assets, made it past the second round of bidding, one of those people said.

** A Canadian-owned company has sold 30 armoured vehicles to Sudan, despite Canadian regulations that ban the export of military and paramilitary equipment to the war-torn country. Documents obtained show that the trucks were exported by Streit Security Vehicles, which is part of Streit Group, owned by Canadian businessman Guerman Goutorov.

** Some of Canada's largest restaurant chains, with hundreds of locations, have been flagged in recent years for violating labelling laws by making claims on their menus that misled customers or misrepresented themselves. These companies include Browns Socialhouse, with 50 locations across Canada, and the ubiquitous Booster Juice chain, which has more than 100 stores.
