TORONTO May 3 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell broadly shortly after the open on Tuesday, led down by weaker commodity-linked shares as prices for oil and copper dropped.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 19.79 points to 13,914.72. Nine of the index's 10 main groups were lower, led by a 0.75 percent decline in the heavyweight oil and gas group. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
