 TORONTO, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index slid
more than 1 percent shortly after the open on Friday, after
data showed U.S. employment ground to a halt in August, though
rallying gold miners helped cushion the fall.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE opened down 117.39 points, or 0.92 percent, at
12,583.35, before extending losses.
