TORONTO, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Strong earnings from a trio of
Canada's top banks pushed the country's main stock index to a
higher close on Thursday, while gold miners again weighed as the
price of bullion fell.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 88.51 points, or 0.70 percent,
at 12,820.90 points. It gained 1 percent in February.
