CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls 2 pct on soft U.S. data, biggest 1-day drop this yr
TORONTO, April 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index tumbled more than 2 percent on Wednesday, with declines in all major sectors, as sluggish U.S. economic data hurt investor sentiment. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 257.38 points, or 2.03 percent, at 12,424.72 in mid-afternoon trade. It was the biggest percentage drop for the index so far this year and its largest one-day fall since June 21, 2012.
