TORONTO, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
on Wednesday to its highest in 2-1/2 years as the World Bank's
bullish forecast for global growth helped fuel gains in most
major sectors and higher oil prices provided support to energy
shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 80.20 points, or 0.59 percent
at 13,772.58. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
