TORONTO, May 18 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell in early trade on Wednesday, weighed down by gold miners and other materials stocks as a stronger U.S. dollar pushed commodity prices broadly lower.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 42.94 points, or 0.31 percent, at 13,874.16 shortly after the open. Eight of its 10 main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
