 TORONTO, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index sank into the red at the open on Monday, pressured by
weak commodity prices and a big drop in Chinese equities, which
stoked concern about the pace of economic recovery.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 112.45
points, or 1.02 percent, at 10,865.52, with nine of its 10 main
groups lower.
