TORONTO, June 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
reached its highest in almost 6 years on Friday as investors
cheered a bullish U.S. jobs report and shrugged off sluggish
Canadian labor data, with energy and bank shares driving the
gains. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 38.72 points, or 0.26 percent,
at 14,838.90. Seven of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
