CANADA STOCKS-TSX hits five-week low on U.S. debt crisis
TORONTO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dropped on Tuesday to its lowest in five weeks as a political standoff in Washington highlighted the crisis over U.S. debt limits and threatened to push the world's biggest economy into default. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 95.84 points, or 0.75 percent, at 12,692.41. Nine of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
