 TORONTO, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
slipped at the open on Tuesday, with the materials sector
leading the fall, as gold miners followed the price of bullion
lower.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 17.09 points, or
0.15 percent, to 11,737.52. Six of the index's 10 main groups
were lower, led by a 1.3 percent decline in materials, which is
home to the gold stocks.
