 TORONTO, April 29 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar hit its
strongest level in three and a half years on Friday against a
broadly weaker U.S. dollar, shrugging off disappointing
Canadian economic data and uncertainty over next week's federal
election.
 The currency CAD=D4 hit C$0.9451 to the U.S. dollar, or
$1.0581, compared with Thursday's North American finish at
C$0.9510 to the U.S. dollar.
