TORONTO, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index jumped
on Tuesday as strength in materials and financials drove the
market higher, offsetting worries about the U.S. Federal
Reserve's stimulus program. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 82.09 points, or 0.65 percent,
at 12,670.11. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
