TORONTO, March 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index climbed to a two-week high on Wednesday, driven up by financial issues and by gold stocks, which rose as the price of the safe-haven metal jumped on political unrest in Europe and the Middle East.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 87.18 points, or 0.62 percent, at 14,087.18.
