TORONTO, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
slightly higher on Wednesday, extending gains from the previous
session on hopes of a bailout request from Spain and after data
showed more jobs were created in the U.S. private sector last
month than analysts had expected.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 opened up 7.63 points, or 0.06 percent, at 12,398.86, 
before modestly extending gains to 12,410.31.
