TORONTO Nov 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened lower on Thursday, pressured by fresh weakness in commodity markets, including a two-month low for crude oil, as well lower than expected profit from Manulife.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 123.13 points, or 0.92 percent, at 13,218.80 shortly after the open, including a 1.7 percent drop in energy stocks. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
