TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index ended the session little changed, with the Bank of Canada’s first rate hike since 2010 in focus, as a gain by Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc helped offset a decline in gold stocks and Restaurant Brands International.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index finished down 5.15 points, or 0.03 percent, to 15,143.99.

Four of the index’s 10 main stocks were lower, while financial stocks were flat.
