TORONTO, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Thursday on expectations that Spain would be pressured
to seek a sovereign bailout after S&P downgraded it to just one
notch above junk, and after encouraging U.S. employment data.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 opened up 2.59 points to 12,215.01, before extending
gains to 12,271.12.
