TORONTO, March 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
closed slightly lower on Tuesday, with declines in the energy
sector partly offset by gains in gold and consumer discretionary
shares, after a crucial vote in Cyprus threatened to push the
country into default.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 7.89 points, or 0.06 percent,
at 12,773.87. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
