TORONTO, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended
its 12th straight session higher on Thursday, buoyed by a jump
in shares of gold miners and in BlackBerry following
Facebook Inc's planned acquisition of mobile-messaging
service WhatsApp.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 90.64 points, or 0.64 percent,
at 14,210.37. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
