CANADA STOCKS-TSX charges higher, resources lead way

TORONTO, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index climbed more than 1 percent on Friday as early broad-based weakness started to reverse, led by strength in resources, despite underlying softness in commodity prices.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 100.64 points, or 1.12 percent, at 9,088.34. Seven of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Rob Wilson)
