CANADA STOCKS-TSX shoots higher for eighth straight session

TORONTO, March 19 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index closed higher for an eighth straight session on Thursday as the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plan to fight the recession boosted commodity prices and buoyed the resource-heavy index.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 74.14 points, or 0.86 percent, at 8,703.24. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Peter Galloway)
