TORONTO, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Friday, as BCE Inc and Astral Media 
shares led the index lower after the country's broadcast
regulator blocked BCE's bid for its rival.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 22.61 points, or 0.18 percent, at 12,443.51.
Nine out of the index's 10 main groups were in negative
territory.
