TORONTO, July 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
slightly on Wednesday, helped by gains in telecom shares after
BCE Inc said it would take Bell Aliant Inc 
private by buying the stake it does not already own in the
company.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 3.50 points, or 0.02 percent, at 15,318.63.
