 TORONTO, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
extended losses on Friday morning, led by declines in  
commodity-based issues such as Canadian Natural Resources
(CNQ.TO: Quote) and Barrick Gold (ABX.TO: Quote), partly from softening
prices for oil and gold and as profit-taking took hold after
the index's big rally in the previous session.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 110.31
points, or 1 percent, at 10,964.91.
