CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends down sharply as Fed, Europe weigh

By Claire Sibonney	
    TORONTO, April 4 (Reuters) - Sinking commodity stocks led
Canadian equities to a near 12-week low on Wednesday, a day
after the U.S. central bank crushed hopes for more monetary
stimulus and as a weak Spanish bond auction signaled the effects
of earlier European funding operations may be waning. 	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 145.02 points, or 1.18
percent, to 12,178.59. Earlier in the session, the index hit its
weakest level since Jan. 13.
