TORONTO, May 8 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks hit a 2012 low on
Tuesday, as resource and financial shares floundered after new
leadership in Greece threatened to renounce the country's
bailout terms, which could have a spillover effect on other euro
zone economies.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 155.81 points, or 1.3
percent, at 11,704.85, its lowest close since Dec. 19, 2011.
