TORONTO, March 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
advanced in a late surge on Thursday, led by strength in
financial and industrial shares, on relief that banks in Cyprus
opened to relative calm following a bailout deal and showed no
signs of a bank run.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 50.25 points, or 0.40 percent,
at 12,749.90. The index recorded a 2.5 percent rise in the first
quarter.
