TORONTO, May 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended
higher on Friday, as a surge in shares of Valeant Pharmaceutical
International Inc after news of a big acquisition plan
canceled broad losses elsewhere, helping the index end the week
in positive territory.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 9.13 points, or 0.07 percent,
at 12,667.22. It gained 0.4 percent for the week.
