 TORONTO, Nov 17 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar touched a
session low against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, following
world stocks and oil prices lower as a surge in Spain's
borrowing costs at an auction stoked fears about contagion of
the euro zone's debt problems.
 The Canadian dollar  CAD=D4 weakened to a low of C$1.0290
against the U.S. dollar, or 97.18 U.S. cents, down from
Wednesday's North American session close at C$1.0229 against
the U.S. dollar, or 97.76 U.S. cents.
