June 26 (Reuters) - Futures for Canada’s main stock index were little changed on Friday as concerns about the economic implications of rising coronavirus cases globally were offset by higher oil prices.
Oil prices inched up as the bullish momentum from signs of fuel demand recovery was kept in check by a rising number of new coronavirus cases in the United States and China and tentative expectations of U.S. output ticking up.
September futures on the S&P/TSX index were down 0.01% at 7:00 a.m. ET.

Canadian pipeline operator Enbridge Inc has to halt Line 5 operations and disclose information related to the recent damage caused to a part of the oil pipeline, a Michigan circuit court judge ordered on Thursday.
