TORONTO, May 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell
more than 1 percent on Thursday, with every major sector in the
red, due to concerns about a possible quicker-than-expected end
to the U.S. Federal Reserve's stimulus program as well as weak
economic data from China and Europe.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 147.25 points, or 1.15 percent, at 12,605.25
in mid-morning trade.
