TORONTO, June 10 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index eased off its lows on Tuesday but still ended down more than 1 percent after the Bank of Canada unexpectedly left interest rates unchanged, and resource shares were knocked down by weak commodity prices.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 231.63 points, or 1.55 percent, at 14,729.13. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr; Editing by Peter Galloway)
