CANADA STOCKS-TSX rides energy shares sharply higher

TORONTO, April 13 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index shot higher on Wednesday morning in an commodities-led rally, reversing some of slide of the previous two sessions as oil prices extended gains.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was 143.33 points, or 1.04 percent, higher at 13,944.73. All of the index’s 10 main sectors were up. The energy sector led with a 1.6 percent climb as oil prices rose sharply in choppy trading after a U.S. government report showed gasoline stocks fell much more than expected.
