TORONTO (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index slid more than 100 points on Tuesday, weighed down by weak resource issues, while investors eyed congressional testimony on the $700 billion plan to bail out the battered U.S. financial sector.

The S&P/TSX composite index was down 102.61 points, or 0.81 percent, at 12,535.46 just after noon.
