TORONTO, July 7 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index surged on Wednesday as a bounce in oil prices and an offer by Total SA (TOTF.PA: Quote) to buy UTS Energy Corp UTS.TO helped lead the index higher for a second straight session.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE gained 191.47 points, or 1.71 percent, to unofficially close at 11,391.64. All 10 main sectors advanced. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
