TORONTO, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose in early trade on Friday with broad gains across industries after U.S. jobs data showed slower growth than expected, which could rule out a rate hike from the U.S. Federal Reserve this month.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 107.30 points, or 0.73 percent, at 14,791.21 shortly after the open. Resource stocks gained as the jobs report weighed on the greenback, boosting commodity prices. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
