TORONTO, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks capped their
best week in more than two months on Friday, led by mining and
financial shares, as expectations central banks in the U.S.,
Europe and China would act to shore up the world's economies
offset weak domestic and Chinese data.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 32.76 points, or 0.3 percent,
at 11,890.89. It was up 2 p e rcent for the week, its biggest
weekly percentage gain since late May.
