TORONTO Feb 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday as lower crude oil prices weighed on energy stocks, while financials reversed course after being lifted in earlier trade by better-than-expected Bank of Montreal earnings.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 82.19 points, or 0.64 percent, at 12,763.44. It included a 3.6 percent drop in the energy group. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
