 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.
