 TORONTO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Canada's dollar fell to its
lowest level of the day on Tuesday afternoon after Canada's
official opposition Liberal Party said it will no longer
support the minority Conservative government of Prime Minister
Stephen Harper.
 Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff made the comments in
Sudbury, Ontario, during a summer gathering of his Liberal
caucus. [ID:nN01496127]
