TORONTO, July 23 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks finished lower
on Monday, led by financial and mining shares, as events in
Spain threatened to escalate Europe's debt crisis, but a
$15.1-billion takeover bid for Nexen Inc boosted energy
stocks and helped the index avoid bigger losses.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 77.37 points, or 0.7 percent,
at 11,545.54. The index rallied after hitting 11,416.49, its
lowest since July 12.
