Loonie: Weakens after surprise drop in Canada jobs
TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened to a session low against its U.S. counterpart on Friday after Canadian employment dropped by a huge 54,000 jobs, bucking expectations for a 12,200 gain.
The Canadian dollar fell to C$1.0170 to the U.S. dollar, or 98.33 U.S. cents, nearly a cent lower than Thursday's North American session close at C$1.0081 to the U.S. dollar, or 99.20 U.S. cents.
