CANADA STOCKS-TSX rallies as energy, financial shares gain

TORONTO, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rallied to close more than 2 percent higher on Tuesday as oil and gas issues climbed on rising crude prices, while financials strengthened as fears over the fate of the U.S. banking sector subsided.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 210.67 points, or 2.75 percent, at 7,858.34, with nine of the index's 10 main groups advancing. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Peter Galloway)
