CANADA STOCKS-TSX flat as oil weighs, gold boosts index

TORONTO, Dec 30 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index was little changed on Tuesday as a drop in oil prices weighed on energy stocks, but the materials sector rose, boosted by higher gold prices.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 4.1 points, or 0.03 percent, at 14,668.00 shortly after the open. (Reporting by Allison Martell; Editing by Nick Zieminski)
