TORONTO, March 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was
little changed in choppy early trade on Friday, with optimism
following positive U.S. jobs data offset by a decline in gold
stocks and in SNC Lavalin Group Inc after the
engineering company reported quarterly results.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 8.59 points, or 0.07 percent, at 12,817.93.
The index briefly turned positive after opening lower.
