 TORONTO, July 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
fell sharply lower shortly after the open on Friday after
Canadian and U.S. economic data came in weaker than expected
and debt jitters on both sides of the Atlantic sent equity
investors to the exits.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 138.95 points, or 1.06 percent, to 12,908.83,
the lowest level in a month.
