CANADA STOCKS-TSX closes higher on commodity strength

TORONTO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index rose on Wednesday for the fourth straight session as strength in commodity stocks overpowered a steep decline in BCE Inc (BCE.TO) after the telecom giant said its leveraged buyout deal was in doubt.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 202.61 points, or 2.4 percent, at 8,645.47. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
