TORONTO, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Wednesday, led by declines in gold-mining shares
following a weaker bullion price, as worries about possible
military action in Syria offset bullish economic data from
Europe and China.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 34.15 points, or 0.27 percent, at 12,706.35
shortly after the open.
