TORONTO, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell on Wednesday as a drop in crude oil prices weighed on energy stocks, while financials fell after one of the country’s largest banks reported a lower-than-expected quarterly profit.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 162.29 points, or 1.27 percent, at 12,601.15, shortly after the open. Nine of the index’s 10 main groups were lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
