TORONTO, March 9 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index hit its lowest level in five weeks on Monday, as energy shares fell with weaker Brent oil prices and smartphone maker BlackBerry Ltd dropped after a downgrade by Goldman Sachs.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 98.01 points, or 0.66 percent, at 14,854.49. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
