 TORONTO, May 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
tumbled at the open on Wednesday as fears that Greece's debt
crisis would spread to other euro zone countries rattled
markets, driving investors to the safety of the U.S. dollar and
hitting commodity prices hard.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 155.28 points, or 1.29 percent, to 11,875.58 at
the open.
