TORONTO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks posted their
biggest gains in a month on Thursday, driven higher by oil
companies and other commodity stocks as a European Central Bank
bond-buying plan and positive U.S. jobs data boosted sentiment.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed 1.25 percent higher, adding 149.59
points to 12,139.73, for the index's highest close since May 2.
