CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher, helped by oil

TORONTO, March 6 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index opened higher on Friday as oil and gas stocks got a boost from higher oil prices and after U.S. jobs data showed losses that weren’t as bad as the market feared.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 56.24 points, or 0.74 percent, at 7,685.41. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Peter Galloway)
