TORONTO, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Tuesday as weakness in the financial and material
sectors offset gains in Encana Corp after the natural
gas producer said it will cut about 20 percent of its workforce
and slash its dividend.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 11.86 points, or 0.09 percent, at 13,349.92
shortly after the open.
