CANADA STOCKS-TSX hits five-week low on U.S. debt crisis

TORONTO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dropped
on Tuesday to its lowest in five weeks as a political standoff
in Washington highlighted the crisis over U.S. debt limits and
threatened to push the world's biggest economy into default.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 95.84 points, or 0.75
percent, at 12,692.41. Nine of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
