 TORONTO, Dec 20 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar hit a
session low against its U.S. counterpart on Monday morning,
after domestic wholesale trade figures came in weaker than
expected. [ID:nSCLKNE680]
 The Canadian currency fell to C$1.0146 against the U.S.
dollar, or 98.56 U.S. cents shortly after the release of the
data. Heading into the data it was little changed from Friday's
close at C$1.0128 versus the greenback, or 98.74 U.S. cents.
