CANADA STOCKS-TSX tumbles 2 percent as Fed plans bite; golds dive

TORONTO, June 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
tumbled more than 2 percent on Thursday after the U.S. Federal
Reserve's hint on Wednesday at exiting its bond buying program
hit every major sector and triggered a huge selloff in
gold-mining shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 256.07 points, or 2.09 percent, at 12,012.22
in mid-afternoon trade.
