TORONTO, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index on
Tuesday recorded its biggest single-day percentage drop in about
two months as escalating tensions in Syria raised the likelihood
the West will launch a military strike.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 169.09 points, or 1.33
percent, at 12,591.21. All of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
