TORONTO, May 3 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
suffered its largest single-day drop in nearly two months on
Thursday as mining and energy shares slumped after weak U.S.
service-sector data heightened concerns about the recovery of
Canada's largest trading partner.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 215.15 points, or 1.8
percent, at 12,014.97, its biggest one-day drop since March 6.
