TORONTO, June 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
climbed sharply on Tuesday, led by the energy and financials
groups, as rising Spanish bond yields heightened expectations of
further central bank stimulus moves and as markets were more
hopeful about Greece remaining in the euro zone.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 extended gains, up 125.81 points, or 1.1 percent, at
11,726.94.
