TORONTO May 8 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell sharply on Tuesday with mining and energy shares selling off as political instability in France and Greece threatened to escalate the euro zone debt crisis, denting demand for riskier commodities.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 137.89 points, or 1.2 percent, at 11,722.77.
