The TSX is up 75 points this morning, building on yesterday's gains, with energy and miners leading. Energy is up 1.41%, followed by miners, up 1.01%.

Healthcare and info tech are the sole decliners, down 0.95% and 0.76% respectively. The info tech was dragged down by a sharp drop of 10% in Blackberry (BB.TO) shares after the company reported a Q1 sales miss.

Meanwhile, the Consumer Price Index ( CPI ) rose 1.3% on a year-over-year basis in May, following a 1.6% gain in April, Statistics Canada reported. Excluding food and energy, the CPI was up 1.4% on a year-over-year basis in May, after posting a 1.5% increase in April.
