TORONTO, May 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell
more than 1 percent on Wednesday, hurt by sluggish economic data
from China that hurt commodity prices and weak earnings reports
from some of the country's biggest companies.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 135.21 points, or 1.09
percent, at 12,321.29. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
