 TORONTO, July 30 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar dropped
against its U.S. counterpart on Friday morning after data
showed U.S. economic growth slowed more than expected in the
second quarter, although data showed GDP in Canada edged higher
in May.
 At 9:20 a.m. (1320 GMT), the Canadian currency CAD=D4 hit
C$1.0369 to the U.S. dollar, or 96.44 U.S., then fell further
from Thursday's close at C$1.0362 to the U.S. dollar, or 96.51
U.S. cents.
