TORONTO, March 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock market index slipped into negative territory on Monday after touching its highest point in eight weeks as weaker oil and metals prices weighed on heavily weighted resource shares.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 0.25 of a point at 11,974.89. Shortly after the open the index hit 12,039.51, its highest level since Jan. 11. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
