CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as Syria fears offset gains in golds
TORONTO, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened lower on Tuesday as escalating tensions in Syria raised the prospect of military action, dampening investor sentiment and offsetting gains in shares of gold producers after the bullion price rose. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 36.77 points, or 0.29 percent, at 12,723.53 shortly after the open.
