CANADA STOCKS-TSX rises as resource gain offsets bank slips

TORONTO, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Resource stocks helped Canada's main stock index gain steadily on Friday, shrugging off weak U.S. jobs data and losses among banks after one raised cash and warned of a writedown.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 97.85 points, or 0.74 percent, at 13,339.74. Eight of its 10 main groups rose. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
