CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as bank, energy shares weigh

TORONTO, June 18 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index slipped on Thursday as weakness in the financial and energy sectors weighed, offsetting a gain in gold-mining shares that benefited from a higher bullion price.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 37.79 points, or 0.26 percent, at 14,695.19 shortly after the open. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
