TORONTO, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slid on
Wednesday, led by mining and financial shares, as a slew of weak
manufacturing reports raised global growth fears, but hopes of
further stimulus measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve were
unfulfilled.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 46.18 points, or 0.4 percent,
at 11,618.53.
