TORONTO, April 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened sharply lower on Monday, weighed down by resource stocks after China notched lower-than-expected first-quarter growth and the price of bullion plunged.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 134.45 points, or 1.09 percent, at 12,203.14 points shortly after the open.
