By Adriano Marchese

  

Shares in Toronto were flat at midday on Friday with energy minerals and consumer durables leading and utilities and producer manufacturing the laggards.

Shares in Roots fell after the company said foreign exchange effects weighed on sales in its second quarter.

Canada’s S&P/TSX Composite Index was up 0.04% to 20714.51 while the blue-chip S&P/TSX 60 slid 0.03% to 1239.20.

Roots Corp.’s shares fell by 1.5% to C$3.21 after the company said performance improved slightly in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. But sales remained virtually flat as unfavorable foreign exchange weighed on wholesale sales with its overseas partner in Taiwan.
