CANADA STOCKS-TSX drops more than 1 percent as resources weigh

TORONTO, May 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell
more than 1 percent on Wednesday as weak economic data from
China and falling commodity prices fueled sharp falls in shares
of materials and energy companies.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 132.22 points, or 1.06 percent, at 12,324.28
in early afternoon trade.
