CANADA STOCKS-TSX dips as gold stocks weaken
TORONTO, April 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was slightly lower at the open on Monday as weakness in the heavily-weighted materials group, which includes gold miners, more than offset a rise in energy stocks. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 7.80 points, or 0.06 percent, at 12,742.10 shortly after the open.
