TORONTO, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
advanced on Thursday as strong commodity prices boosted shares
of energy and materials companies and offset uncertainty over
how soon the U.S. Federal Reserve might begin to scale back its
stimulus measures.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 65.22 points, or 0.52 percent,
at 12,704.52. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were in
the red.
