1 Min Read

TORONTO, July 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
slipped on Tuesday to its lowest in more than a week after a
breakup of a Russian-Belarusian joint venture fueled a slump in
shares of Potash Corp and raised fears of a price fall
in the industry. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 62.67 points, or 0.50 percent, at 12,606.27
shortly after the open. Potash lost more than a fifth of its
market value.
