TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index ended higher on Wednesday as gold and base metal miners gained as political uncertainty boosted bullion and a likely squeeze on supply pushed copper prices higher.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 55.24 points, or 0.36 percent, at 15,554.04. Eight of its 10 main industry groups rose.
