TORONTO, May 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index edged
up on Friday, boosted by a gain in shares of Valeant 
after the company again boosted the cash component of its bid
for Allergan, which helped offset disappointing domestic
economic growth figures.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 10.70 points, or 0.07 percent,
at 14,599.65.
