 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 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]
