TORONTO, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index gained
the most in almost two weeks on Tuesday, as investors brushed
off a partial U.S. government shutdown to buy into banks,
insurers and energy companies while selling gold miners.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially ended up 60.25 points, or 0.47 percent,
at 12,847.44.
