TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended slightly lower on Monday, as a fall in oil prices weighed on energy stocks while gold miners were buoyed by a jump in the price of bullion amid political uncertainty in the United States and Europe.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 19.45 points, or 0.13 percent, at 15,456.94. Seven of its 10 main groups fell, with the heavyweight energy group off 2.2 percent.
