 TORONTO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar hit a
fresh 2011 low against its U.S. counterpart in early trade on
Friday after U.S. data showed flat consumer spending and
falling income and Canadian data showed decent GDP growth.
 At 9:35 a.m. (1145 GMT), the Canadian dollar CAD=D3 was
at C$1.0464, or 95.57 U.S. cents, down from Thursday's North
American session close at C$1.0366 to the U.S. dollar, or 96.47
U.S. cents. It touched as low as C$1.0467, or 95.54 U.S. cents,
its softest level since Sept. 8, 2010.
