TORONTO, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index had its
largest one-day gain in a month on Friday as financial and
resource shares were boosted after the U.S. economy added more
jobs than expected in July, easing concerns about the health of
the world's largest economy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closes up 155.79 points, or 1.3 percent,
at 11,662.29. It was the index's biggest single-day percentage
gain since July 3, when it spiked 2.2 percent.
