CANADA STOCKS-TSX flat as resource stock falls offset by big bank gains

TORONTO, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was little changed in early trade on Thursday, as gold and base metal miners weighed with a fall in commodity prices and heavyweight financials rose.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 5.1 points, or 0.03 percent, at 15,394.70 shortly after opening lower. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
