CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends higher as healthcare shares support

TORONTO, July 2 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Thursday as investors found safety in healthcare shares and other defensive sectors, offsetting weakness in commodity-sensitive stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 84.66 points, or 0.58 percent, at 14,637.99. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
