 TORONTO, July 15 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index closed higher on Friday, pushed up by solid gains in its
resource groups as key commodity prices advanced.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed 46.62 points, or 0.35 percent,
higher at 13,299.54. Seven of the index's 10 main sectors were
lower, but rises in its two resource-based groups were enough
to push the index up. Oil and gas rose 1.36 percent, while
materials advanced 0.7 percent.
