TORONTO, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks closed higher on
Friday, led by gold miners as U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke left the door wide open for further monetary easing
that would lend support to commodities.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 62.61 points, or 0.53 percent,
at 11,949.26. It ended 1.1 percent lower over the full week.
