CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends down 3 pct on recession, bank fears

 TORONTO, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
closed more than 3 percent lower on Thursday as growing fears
about a new recession and the likelihood that the European
financial crisis might spread to the U.S. banking sector
unnerved investors.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially ended down 392.90 points, or 3.12
percent, at 12,186.71, its weakest close since Aug. 9.
