 TORONTO, Oct 4 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar extended
losses in early trade on Tuesday to hit a fresh 13-month low
against its U.S. counterpart as North American stock markets
tumbled as worries about Europe's debt crisis intensified.
 At 9:58 a.m. (1358 GMT), the Canadian dollar CAD=D3 stood
at C$1.0613 to the U.S. dollar, or 94.22 U.S. cents, down from
Monday's North American close of C$1.0511 to the U.S. dollar,
or 95.14 U.S. cents.
 That was the weakest level since Sept. 1, 2010, when it
fell as low as C$1.0653 to the U.S. dollar, or 93.87 U.S.
cents.
