TORONTO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Friday as unexpectedly strong North American jobs data
supported demand for riskier assets.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 opened up 6.99 points, or 0.06 percent, to 12,454.67,
before modestly extending gains to 12,472.40.
