The Canadian dollar was slightly lower Friday amid falling oil and metal prices.
The commodity-sensitive currency had been positive earlier but by late morning it was down 0.04 of a cent (U.S.) at 102.14 cents.
Oil prices have risen this week on fears that the conflict in Syria could widen and threaten oil shipments from the Mideast. But on Friday, the November contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was down 40 cents (U.S.) to $91.67 a barrel.
