 TORONTO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar
strengthened slightly against the U.S. currency on Tuesday
after Canadian data showed factory sales rose in September.
 Data showed manufacturing sales rose twice as fast as
expected in September to the highest level since October 2008,
sealing expectations for robust third-quarter economic growth.
