CANADA STOCKS-TSX gets early boost from energy and banks

TORONTO, April 23 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index opened higher on Thursday as the resource-heavy market drew support from a rise in oil prices and a better-than-expected profit from a key energy player, while banks also rallied.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 65.19 points, or 0.7 percent, to 9,344.34 at the open. Nine of the TSX’s 10 sectors were higher, led by a 0.8 percent gain among the weighty financials group. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
