TORONTO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a
session high against the greenback on Tuesday after data showed
housing starts rose more than expected in September.
    The Canadian dollar was at C$1.0310, or 96.99 U.S.
cents, stronger than Monday's close of C$1.0313, or 96.96 U.S.
cents. The Canadian currency hit a session high of C$1.0308
shortly after the data was released.
