TORONTO, May 26 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index ended slightly higher on Wednesday thanks to strength in energy shares and healthy earnings at Bank of Montreal (BMO.TO: Quote).
Bank of Montreal's forecast-topping results kicked off the quarterly earnings season for Canadian banks, and its stock rose 2.6 percent to C$60.26.
"We've seen some good earnings from BMO, which pretty much helped the whole financial sector," said Francis Campeau, broker at MF Global Canada in Montreal.
