1 Min Read

TORONTO, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell 1 percent on Wednesday, with most of the damage done by an influential short-seller's accusations that Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc artificially inflates it revenue.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 137.73 points, or 1.00 percent, at 13,704.19. Valeant ended down 19.2 percent at C$154.21 after falling as much as 40 percent in the session. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Diane Craft)
