CANADA STOCKS-TSX turns lower as resources weigh

 TORONTO, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
slipped lower in early trade on Friday, dragged down by energy
and materials issues, after it opened higher on strong Canadian
jobs figures.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 7.83 points, or 0.06 percent, to 13.833.52.
Seven of the index's 10 main groups were lower, led down by a
0.39 percent fall in energy.
 The index rose at the open, buoyed by January Canadian
employment data that came in much stronger than expected even
though U.S. figures showed lower-than-expected jobs growth
south of the border. [ID:nN04126209] [ID:nN0366997]
