TORONTO, May 4 (Reuters) - Canada's resource-heavy main
stock index tumbled to a 2012 low on Friday as energy and
financial shares sank after data that signaled a slowing in U.S.
job creation and a euro zone economy on the edge of another
recession sapped investor confidence.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 143.67 points, or 1.20
percent, at 11,871.23. It touched 11,824.27, its lowest level
since December 29.
