CANADA STOCKS-TSX slumps ahead of U.S. jobs data; TD Bank gains

 TORONTO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index fell on Thursday, ending a four-day rally, as investors paused ahead of a key U.S. jobs report on Friday, but strength in gold stocks and strong earnings from Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD.TO) helped offset losses.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 67.96 points, or 0.53 percent, at 12,700.74. Nine of the 10 main groups were lower.  (Reporting by Trish Nixon; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
