TORONTO, July 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index hit
its highest level in nearly two months on Tuesday, led by mining
and energy shares, as hopes of further monetary easing by
central banks helped allay worries about the impact of the euro
zone crisis.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 256.39 points, or 2.2 percent, at 11,852.95,
its highest level since May 7.
