CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends lower as energy, telecom shares weigh

TORONTO, June 8 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index slipped on Wednesday as weakness in the energy and telecoms sectors weighed, offsetting a gain in shares of gold-mining companies benefiting from higher bullion prices.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 52.51 points, or 0.37 percent, at 14,313.10. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by James Dalgleish)
