CANADA STOCKS-Manulife results help lift TSX

 TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock market index rose on Thursday, helped by better-than-expected results from Manulife Financial (MFC.TO), although declining gold-mining stocks kept the gains in check.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 23.41 points to 12,222.30. Seven of the index’s 10 main groups were higher, led by a 0.8 percent rally in financials.  (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
