CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as materials, U.S. fiscal talks weigh
TORONTO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened lower on Monday as a decline in material and financial stocks more than offset a modest rise in the energy sector, with uncertainty over U.S. budget talks persisting into the last stretch of the year. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 10.76 points, or 0.09 percent, at 12,285.96 shortly after the open.
