* Celestica Inc fell 8%, the most on the TSX, after the electronics company posted fourth-quarter revenue below analysts' expectations. The second-biggest decliner was fuel-cell products developer Ballard Power Systems Inc, down 8.7%.

* The financials sector slipped 0.8%, while the industrials sector fell 1.8%.

* On the TSX, 15 issues were higher, while 203 issues declined for a 13.53-to-1 ratio to the downside, with 18.50 million shares traded.
