TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to a session low on Friday after domestic data showed Canada's annual inflation rate in May eased to 1.2 percent from 2.0 percent in April.

The Canadian dollar touched C$1.0301 versus the U.S. dollar, or 97.08 U.S. cents, moving from around C$1.0285 just before the data's release.
