CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as U.S. shutdown in focus

TORONTO, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Wednesday, led by heavily weighted financial stocks, as
investors worried about the implications of a partial shutdown
of the U.S. government on debt ceiling talks later this month.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 opened lower, down 40.97 points, or 0.3 percent at
12,806.47. All but the materials group was in negative
territory.
