TORONTO, July 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
closed within striking distance of the all-time highs hit last
week, with broad but shallow declines across most major
industries partly offset by a 3 percent jump in Valeant
Pharmaceuticals International Inc. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 16.58 points, or 0.11
percent, at 15,249.99. The index hit 15,291.15 on Friday, its
highest ever level.
