 TORONTO, Sept 12 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index fell sharply on Monday, touching its lowest point in
nearly three weeks, as fears of a Greek default that could
spread to other countries hit commodity prices and related
companies hard.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed down 238.71 points, or 1.93
percent, at 12,148.83. Earlier in the session it fell to
12,041.61, its weakest level since August 23.
