TORONTO, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Tuesday as escalating tensions in Syria raised the
prospect of military action, dampening investor sentiment and
offsetting gains in shares of gold producers after the bullion
price rose. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 36.77 points, or 0.29 percent, at 12,723.53
shortly after the open.
