 TORONTO, May 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
closed sharply lower on Tuesday, weighed down by persistent
worries about Greece's aid package, which sent investors to the
safety of the U.S. dollar and hit oil prices.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed down 165.52 points, or 1.36
percent, at 12,030.99, managing to recover somewhat from a near
2 percent fall earlier.
