TORONTO, April 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
jumped more than 1 percent on Wednesday, making its sharpest
one-day percentage gain in more than 8 months, as higher
commodity prices fueled a rise in shares of gold and energy
producers.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 179.49 points, or 1.48 percent,
at 12,270.43. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
