TORONTO, May 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
dropped on Wednesday, weighed down by weakness in Valeant
Pharmaceuticals after the drugmaker raised its takeover
offer for Allergan Inc and by a slide in gold-mining
shares as the bullion price fell.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 47.06 points, or 0.32
percent, at 14,610.96. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
