CANADA STOCKS-TSX plays catch-up, opens sharply higher

TORONTO, May 19 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index opened sharply higher on Tuesday as higher oil prices boosted oil and gas issues and as Toronto played catch-up with U.S. stock markets after being closed on Monday for the Victoria Day holiday.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 257.86 points, or 2.64 percent, at 10,020.71, with all of its 10 main groups higher. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
