TORONTO, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell on Wednesday as the resource-rich market was hurt by a sharp slide in oil prices that hit its energy companies, while banks and other financial stocks also pulled back.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 87.70 points, or 0.60 percent, at 14,597.15. For the month of August, it notched a 0.1 percent gain. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Leslie Adler)
