Sept 24 (Reuters) - The following are the top stories from selected Canadian newspapers. Reuters has not verified these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.


* A new coalition in favor of Quebec's Charter of Values says it has gained the support of former Supreme Court justice Claire L'Heureux-Dubé, a figure who stands to offer high-profile legal heft to proponents of the ban on religious headgear in the public service. ()

* Two Toronto-born teenagers have been identified as the Canadians injured in an attack on a Nairobi mall, with a relative saying one of them remains in critical condition. The girls are Fardosa Abdi, 17, and Dheeman Abdi, 16, who were shopping Saturday when the attack on the mall began, their aunt told the Associated Press. ()

* Insurance companies have dished out about C$1.7 billion ($1.65 billion) worth of claims related to the floods in southern Alberta, and the high price tag will likely mean changes to the insurance business - with customers paying more for coverage. ()
