 TORONTO, Oct 13 (Reuters) - Canada's dollar eased slightly
on Tuesday afternoon after Prime Minister Stephen Harper said
the strength in the currency, which earlier hit a 14-month
high, is a concern.
 The Canadian dollar fell as low as C$1.0358 to the U.S.
dollar, or 96.54 U.S. cents, after Harper's comments to
reporters. It had been trading around C$1.0336 to the U.S.
dollar, or 96.75 U.S. cents, before the comments.
