 TORONTO, Dec 7 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar weakened
slightly on Tuesday after the Bank of Canada held its key
interest rate steady, as expected.
 The currency CAD=D4 slipped to C$1.0041 to the U.S.
dollar, or 99.59 U.S. cents, from about C$1.0027, or 99.73 U.S.
cents right before the announcement. It was still higher than
Monday's close at C$1.0053 to the U.S. dollar, or 99.47 U.S.
