TORONTO, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index pushed
higher on Thursday as strong commodity prices drove gold and
energy issues, more than making up for weaker telecom stocks.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 81.43 points, or 0.61 percent,
at 13,324.75, extending a strong two-week run that has the index
at its highest level in more than two years.
