CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as banks and oil drag

TORONTO, April 7 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index opened lower on Tuesday as toxic asset concerns rattled shares of banks and insurers, while a drop in oil prices pulled down the energy sector.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 71.05 points, or 0.79 percent, to 8,945.12 at the open. Nine of the TSX’s 10 sectors were lower. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
