CANADA STOCKS-Toronto stocks rise in short session, led by mining
TORONTO, Dec 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed higher in an abbreviated session on Tuesday, led by mining stocks after a pair of deals in that sector and stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 69.89 points, or 0.52 percent, at 13,517.59. The Toronto exchange will remain closed on Wednesday and Thursday for the Christmas and Boxing Day holidays.
