CANADA STOCKS-TSX buoyed by ECB optimism, closes at 1-mth high

TORONTO, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed
at its highest level in more than a month on Tuesday, led by
energy and mining shares, on investor hopes that the European
Central Bank will move to combat the region's sovereign debt
crisis.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 200.91 points, or 1.7 percent,
at 11,863.50. The second straight session of solid gains took
the index to its highest close since July 4.
