TORONTO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar strengthened
to a session high on Tuesday after data showed Canadian retail
sales edged up in August, while a separate report showed the
U.S. economy created far fewer jobs than expected last month.  
    The Canadian dollar was at C$1.0283 versus the
greenback, or 97.25 U.S. cents, a session high and stronger than
Monday's close of C$1.0301, or 97.08 U.S. cents.
