TORONTO, Dec 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed
higher in an abbreviated session on Tuesday, led by mining
stocks after a pair of deals in that sector and
stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 69.89 points, or 0.52 percent,
at 13,517.59.
    The Toronto exchange will remain closed on Wednesday and
Thursday for the Christmas and Boxing Day holidays.
