TORONTO, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
recorded its biggest single-day percentage drop in eight weeks
on Monday as concerns about the U.S. Federal Reserve's exit
strategy for its stimulus program hit every major sector.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 148.86 points, or 1.17
percent, and 12,588.06. All of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
