Toronto stocks extend losses as resources fall

TORONTO, Sept 2 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index fell more than 2 percent on Tuesday, dragged lower by retreating resource issues as oil prices dropped after Hurricane Gustav appeared to have spared major U.S. oil facilities in the Gulf of Mexico.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 300.34 points, or 2.18 percent, at 13,470.91. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr; editing by Rob Wilson)
