TORONTO, July 26 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks had their
biggest single-day gain in more than three weeks on Thursday,
led by financial and resource shares, as European Central Bank
President Mario Draghi's pledge to protect the euro zone from
collapse ignited a commodities rally.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 147.24 points, or 1.3 percent,
at 11,639.75. It was the index's largest one-day percentage jump
since July 3.
