TORONTO, May 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell more than 1 percent on Wednesday, hurt by sluggish economic data from China that hurt commodity prices and weak earnings reports from some of the country's biggest companies. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 135.21 points, or 1.09 percent, at 12,321.29. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
