TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index ended slightly lower on Tuesday as financial stocks weighed, while a flight to safety boosted gold prices and helped miners and as shares of Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO) jumped on reports it and Siemens were discussing a merger of rail operations.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 3.68 points, or 0.02 percent, at 15,727.11. Half of its 10 main sectors fell.
