TORONTO, March 3 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Thursday to a fresh two-month high as energy and mining stocks advanced despite lower crude oil prices, while financial sector stocks also rose.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 25.13 points, or 0.19 percent, at 13,043.06, shortly after the open. Six of the index’s 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
