 TORONTO, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
rallied on Wednesday after two days of sharp declines,
finishing up 1 percent as U.S. economic data and stronger
commodity prices helped offset fears about the looming Greek
referendum on the euro-zone's bailout package.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE ended up 126.66 points, or 1 percent, at 12,241.76.
