CANADA STOCKS-TSX rallies on news of Safeway deal
TORONTO, June 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rebounded on Thursday after days of weakness as worries about central bank stimulus were offset by a jump in Empire Co Ltd , which is buying Safeway Inc's Canadian assets for $5.7 billion. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index ended the day up 167.24 points, or 1.38 percent, at 12,277.13, recovering from a seven-week low early in the session. All 10 of the index's subgroups were firmer.
