CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls on resources, financials; railways shine
TORONTO, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended slightly lower on Wednesday, as strong gains for the country's two main railways failed to overcome sharp declines in heavyweight mining, energy and financial stocks. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 4.74 points, or 0.04 percent, at 13,243.32. It had risen in the previous six sessions and is at a two-year peak.
