CANADA STOCKS-TSX closes higher on bank issues
TORONTO, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index finished higher on Thursday as expectations for a healthy bank earnings season, starting next week, boosted financial issues.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 43.82 points, or 0.34 percent, to unofficially close at 12,945.81 in a quiet session, with U.S. markets closed for Thanksgiving.
