TORONTO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
on Friday to its highest in more than two weeks as the market
cheered stimulus-friendly comments from the Federal Reserve's
Janet Yellen, who is expected to take over as head of the U.S.
central bank.
    In early trade, the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX
composite index was up 23.17 points, or 0.17 percent,
at 13,454.55, after climbing to as high as 13,464.08.
