TORONTO, April 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
reached its highest in nearly six years on Thursday after
positive U.S. economic data drove gains in the price of oil,
which in turn lifted shares of the commodity's producers. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 53.87 points, or 0.37 percent,
at 14,500.39. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
