CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher, led by energy, financials; Cyprus eyed
TORONTO, March 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened higher on Tuesday, with strength in energy and financials offsetting a decline in the materials sector, as equity investors largely shrugged off a crucial vote in Cyprus that threatened to push the island into default. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 30.40 points, or 0.24 percent, at 12,812.16 shortly after the open.
