The TSX is up 33 points on predominantly positive sectors. Info tech is the biggest gainer, up 0.62%, boosted by news from Blackberry (BB.TO) that it is creating a new business unit, called BlackBerry Technology Solutions, to be led by Sandeep Chennakeshu. BlackBerry CEO John Chen said combining the company's technology assets into a single business unit will create operational synergies and new revenue streams, furthering BlackBerry's turnaround strategy.

Healthcare is the biggest loser this morning, shedding 0.75%.
