TORONTO, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index hit
its highest level in more than three months on Tuesday after
bullish data indicated rising strength in the global economy and
news of Verizon Communications Inc not entering the
country drove up telecoms shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 86.60 points, or 0.68 percent,
at 12,740.50. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
