 TORONTO, Jan 5 (Reuters) -  The Canadian dollar climbed
back above parity against the greenback on Wednesday after the
U.S. ADP national employment report showed a much better than
expected gain in private sector jobs for December.
 Following the data, the currency CAD=D4 touched a high of
C$0.9966 to the U.S. dollar, or $1.0034, up from about
C$1.0011, or 99.89 U.S. cents just before the release.
