TORONTO, May 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell sharply in early dealings on Thursday as plunging commodity prices put sustained pressure on the resource heavy market.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index dropped 140.44 points, or 1.03 percent, to 13,470.88 shortly after the open. Nine of the 10 index sectors were lower, led by declines of more than 1.5 percent in both the oil and gas group and the materials group. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
