TORONTO, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended
higher on Wednesday, helped by a bounce in oil and gas shares as
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke defended the U.S. central
bank's stimulus policy and U.S. data pointed to economic
resilience.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 71.95 points, or 0.57 percent,
at 12,732.39. That was its best daily performance in more than a
week.
