TORONTO, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
dropped sharply on Wednesday with weak commodity prices pulling
resource shares lower as minutes from the most recent U.S.
Federal Reserve meeting showed it may stop or slow its
bond-buying program before the U.S. job market rebounds.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 96.16 points, or 0.75
percent, at 12,714.05. Eight of the index's 10 main sectors were
in the red.
