CANADA STOCKS-TSX climbs after Bank of Canada decision
TORONTO Jan 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index jumped on Wednesday as the Bank of Canada cut its benchmark rate in a surprise move to minimize the impact of lower oil prices on economic growth.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 251.98 points, or 1.76 percent, at 14,560.42 shortly after the open. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
