Toronto stocks tumble as golds and oils weigh

TORONTO, March 10 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index shed more than 100 points on Monday as gold and energy firms were undercut by sliding commodity prices.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 103.02 points, or 0.8 percent, at 13,178.70.

The decline would have been more severe if not for a jump in the shares of BCE Inc (BCE.TO), which received a boost after a Quebec court approved a C$34.8-billion takeover offer from a group of private-equity investors.
