TORONTO, June 26 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
slipped on Wednesday after telecoms stocks suffered deep losses
on reports that Verizon Communications Inc is looking to
enter the market and gold-mining shares slumped following a
tumbling bullion price.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 53.52 points, or 0.45
percent, at 11,951.90. Five of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
