 TORONTO, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
extended its decline on Friday as U.S. confidence data
undermined the market's faith in the global economic recovery.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 108.04
points, or 1 percent, at 10,717.52. Eight of its 10 main groups
were lower, led by a 1.9 percent drop in the materials group
and a 1.7 decline in energy.
