 TORONTO, July 8 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index fell on Friday as disappointing U.S. jobs data for June
hit sentiment, though the decline was tempered by hopes the
setback to economic recovery was temporary.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 34.30 points, or 0.26 percent, to unofficially
close at 13,371.70. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were
lower with energy shares falling 0.81 percent.
