 TORONTO, June 3 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index sank
more than 1 percent in a broad-based sell off, led by the hefty
energy, materials and financial sectors, as disappointing U.S.
jobs data dragged on sentiment and knocked commodity prices.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 137.90, or 1.02 percent to 13,381.60 shortly
after the open.
