TORONTO Aug 25 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell slightly on Thursday as lower commodity prices weighed on natural resource stocks, while financials edged higher after two of the country's major banks reported better-than-expected earnings.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 15.98 points, or 0.11 percent, at 14,610.26, shortly after the open. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by W Simon)
