(Reuters) - Canadian industries ran at 80.6 percent of capacity in the second quarter of 2013, down slightly from 80.8 percent in the first quarter, Statistics Canada said on Friday.

Declines in oil and gas extraction and primary metals more than offset gains in transportation equipment manufacturing and chemical product manufacturing in the quarter.
