TORONTO, July 31 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks had their
biggest one-day drop in more than two weeks on Tuesday, led by
energy and mining shares, as hopes dimmed that the U.S. Federal
Reserve would announce new stimulus measures at its policy
meeting this week.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 93.17 points, or 0.8 percent,
at 11,664.71. Despite the loss, the index still was up 0.5
percent for the month.
