TORONTO, July 26 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks rallied on
Thursday, led by energy and financial shares, as euro zone fears
eased after Europe's central bank chief vowed to save the
debt-plagued region from collapse, offsetting weak earnings from
top gold miner Barrick Gold.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 125.90 points, or 1.1 percent, at 11,618.41.
The index was on track for its largest single-day percentage
gain since July 3.
