 TORONTO, July 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
rose 2 percent late on Thursday morning after the Bank of
Canada said the country's economy will pull out of its worst
recession since the early 1990s during this quarter.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 208.72 points,
or 2 percent, to 10,641.07 at 11:41 a.m. Nine of the TSX's 10
subindexes were higher, led by a 2.77 percent rally in the
mining-laden materials group, as gold held near six-week
highs.
