TORONTO, July 4 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index retreated in thin volumes on Friday as softer commodity prices pulled down energy and materials issues, while telecoms giant BCE (BCE.TO: Quote) provided an upward push.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 127.54 points, or 0.9 percent, to unofficially close at 14,016.03.
