TORONTO, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
climbed on Wednesday as concerns about potential Western
military action against Syria drove up oil prices to record
levels and lifted shares of energy producers, but those same
fears weighed on other sectors.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 16.01 points, or 0.13 percent,
at 12,607.22. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were in
the red.
