TORONTO, May 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on
Wednesday as market-supportive comments from U.S. Federal
Reserve Chair Janet Yellen helped fuel gains in energy and
financial shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 44.11 points, or 0.30 percent,
at 14,656.40. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
