 TORONTO, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar rose to a
session high in early trade after U.S. data showed the economy
grew slightly more than previously reported in the second
quarter, and jobless claims fell last week, while Canadian data
showed a rise in producer prices.
 At 8:34 a.m. (1234 GMT), the Canadian dollar CAD=D4 stood
at C$1.0279 versus the U.S. dollar, or 97.29 U.S. cents, up
from Wednesday's North American session close of C$1.0326, or
96.84 U.S. cents, and just off the session high of C$1.0271.
