TORONTO, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
climbed on Tuesday to reach its highest in nearly three years as
global equity markets cheered the Bank of Japan's stimulative
monetary policy measures and a jump in oil prices lifted shares
of energy producers.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 22.71 points, or 0.16 percent,
at 14,077.47. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
