TORONTO, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed
weaker on Friday, led by gold miners such as Goldcorp Inc 
and Barrick Gold Corp, after the price of the precious
metal tumbled to a six-month low on weakening investor demand.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 ended down 35.16 points, or 0.28 percent, at 12,686.63
after earlier dropping to 12,667.70, its lowest point since Jan.
