 TORONTO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar strengthened
to a session high against its U.S. counterpart on Thursday
after the European Central Bank cut interest rates, while
global markets see-sawed amid chaos over Greece's role in the
euro zone.
 The Canadian dollar CAD=D3  spiked to C$1.0067 to the
U.S. dollar, or 99.38 U.S. cents, after the surprise ECB cut,
up from Wednesday's North American session close at C$1.0136 to
the U.S. dollar, or 98.66 U.S. cents.
