 TORONTO, Oct 7 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar surged
higher against its U.S. counterpart in early trade on Friday
after the Canadian employment report came in far stronger than
expected, with a big seasonal bump in teacher hiring.
 The Canadian dollar CAD=D3 climbed to a session high
C$1.0332 to the U.S. dollar, or 96.81 U.S. cents, immediately
after the data was released, up from Thursday's North American
session at C$1.0378 to the U.S. dollar, or 96.36 U.S. cents.
