 TORONTO, Dec 6 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar touched a
session low against the U.S. currency on Monday, dragged down
in part by a broadly firmer greenback on persistent concerns
about the European debt crisis.
 At 8:37 a.m. (1337 GMT), the Canadian dollar hit C$1.0084
to the U.S. dollar, or 99.17 U.S. cents, down from Friday's
finish at C$1.0033, or 99.67 U.S. cents.
 The move lower also coincided with domestic government data
that showed the value of Canadian building permits fell 6.5
percent in October from September on a sharp decline in housing
construction. [ID:nSCL6NE67M]
