TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index fell on Wednesday as a decline in Bank of Montreal (BMO.TO: Quote) shares after the lender's quarterly profit missed estimates and market weakness following worries about the U.S. stimulus program overshadowed a surge in gold producers.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 17.91 points, or 0.14 percent, at 12,732.61. Seven of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
