CANADA STOCKS-TSX drops sharply on weak energy
TORONTO, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell hard on Monday as weak energy prices hit resource-linked shares after a big selloff on Chinese stock markets shook confidence in economic recovery.
The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 114.24 points, or 1.04 percent, to 10,863.73. All of the index's 10 main groups dropped, led by a 2.1 percent decline in oil and gas and a 2.22 percent fall in materials. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
