TORONTO, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed
higher on Wednesday, helped by steps toward a ceasefire in
Ukraine and further signs that the Chinese economy is improving.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 38.55 points, or 0.25 percent,
at 15,657.63. It hit a fresh record high of 15,685.13 early in
the session.
