TORONTO, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
finished firmly higher on Thursday, as strong corporate results
from Goldcorp Inc and Agnico Eagle Mines Inc as
well as encouraging global economic data helped propel the
market higher.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 climbed 105.21 points, or 0.86 percent, to 12,300.23,
breaking a four-day retreat. Eight of the index's 10 main groups
were stronger.
