TORONTO, June 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
turned positive on Thursday as a jump in Empire Co Ltd 
after the Sobeys operator said it will buy Safeway Inc's 
Canadian assets helped offset central bank stimulus worries.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 1.96 points, or 0.02 percent, at 12,111.85 in
midmorning trade.
