CANADA STOCKS-TSX retreats 0.9 pct; resource, railway stocks weigh

TORONTO, June 29 (Reuters) – Canada’s main stock index fell
sharply in a broad retreat on Thursday, pushed down by losses
among resource and industrial stocks and with interest-rate
sensitive telecom stocks weighing after a hawkish turn from the
Bank of Canada this week.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index
unofficially closed down 142.16 points, or 0.93
percent, at 15,213.42. All 10 of its main sectors ended in the
red.
