CANADA STOCKS-TSX tips positive, Bombardier supports
TORONTO, March 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index briefly turned higher on Wednesday morning thanks to strength in energy issues and a boost from plane maker Bombardier.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 2.09 points at 14,124.94.
The industrials group was up almost 1 percent after Bombardier (BBDb.TO: Quote) reached a deal for as many as 120 aircraft with Warren Buffett's NetJets Inc. The deal could earn it more than $6.7 billion. Bombardier was the top blue-chip gainer, up nearly 8 percent at C$6.63. [ID:nN02187860] [ID:nL3E7E20EN] (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Rob Wilson)
