TORONTO, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index touched its highest in seven weeks on Tuesday, driven by a jump in shares of gold miners and a broad rally in most other major sectors, as well as news that Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will delay a sales tax increase. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 90.47 points, or 0.61 percent, at 14,972.97. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher.
