CANADA STOCKS-RIM helps TSX end higher but BMO drags
TORONTO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index finished higher on Friday, bolstered by rises in resources issues and Research In Motion RIM.TO, but a drop in Bank of Montreal BMO.TO shares tempered the gain.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 20.31 points, or 0.15 percent at 13,201.54.
