CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends lower as commodities sell off

Friday, 5 Oct 2012 | 4:03 PM ET

TORONTO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index backed away from its highest level in nearly three weeks on Friday as concerns about weakness in the global economy hurt commodity prices, countering unexpectedly strong North American jobs data.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index

unofficially ended down 28.69 points, or 0.23 percent, at 12,418.99.
