 TORONTO, June 3 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar tumbled to
its weakest level against the U.S. dollar in more than two
months on Friday, after data showed U.S. employment rose far
less than expected in May and recorded its softest reading
since September.
 The Canadian dollar hit a session low of C$0.9840, or
$1.0163 -- its softest level since March 23 -- compared to
C$0.9782 to the U.S. dollar, or $1.0223, immediately before the
release. [ID:nOAT004818]
