CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls more than 2 pct in broad decline

TORONTO, April 7 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was down more than 2 percent on Tuesday afternoon in a broad decline led by energy and financial issues.

Toxic asset concerns shook shares of banks and insurers, while oil prices fell more than 3 percent and pulled down the energy group.

At 2:33 p.m. (1833 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 183.12 points, or 2.03 percent, at 8,833.05. All 10 of the TSX's main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
