 TORONTO, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell
1 percent shortly after the open on Wednesday as energy and
other resource-related issues tumbled after a slew of poor
economic data from the United States, China and Europe, and on
fears that the euro zone's debt contagion had spread to
Germany.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE dropped 117.88 points, or 1 percent, to 11,677.31 at
the open and then extended losses.
