 TORONTO, March 25 (Reuters) - Canada's dollar was steady at
lower levels against the U.S. currency on Friday afternoon
after the country's minority Conservative government was
defeated in a nonconfidence vote, triggering a federal
election. [ID:nN25229687]
 The Canadian dollar was steady around C$0.9810 to the U.S.
dollar, or $1.0194, having weakened earlier in the session from
a rising greenback and softer oil prices.
 The currency was also down from Thursday's North American
close  at C$0.9762 to the U.S. dollar, or $1.0244.
