TORONTO, May 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Wednesday as weak economic data from China and falling
commodity prices weighed on materials and energy stocks, but
shares of Tim Hortons Inc rose after a large investor
called for changes.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 88.17 points, or 0.71 percent, at 12,368.33
shortly after the open.
