CANADA STOCKS-TSX surges on Fed plan despite weak Potash

 TORONTO, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
closed at its highest level in more than two years on Thursday
as commodity prices soared a day after the U.S. Federal Reserve
unveiled its plans to jolt the economy.
 The strength overshadowed a drop in Potash Corp shares
after the Canadian government blocked BHP Billiton's takeover
bid.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially ended up 207.67 points, or 1.64 percent,
at 12,878.79, its strongest close since Sept. 19, 2008.
