TORONTO (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index erased a more than 200 point deficit and turned positive on Wednesday on hopes the U.S. Senate would approve a bailout plan to stabilize the financial sector.

Just before 1:00 p.m., the S&P/TSX composite index was up 3.80 points at 11,756.70, with six of its 10 main groups higher.
