TORONTO, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell
to a two-month low on Tuesday, led lower by mining and other
materials stocks, which were hurt by renewed concerns about a
potential fiscal crisis in the United States and economic
turmoil in Europe.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 50.36 points, or 0.41 percent, at 12,141.10
shortly after the open. Earlier in the session the index hit its
lowest point since Sept. 6, touching 12,124.35.
