TORONTO, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Thursday, led by a 25-percent jump in Loblaw Cos Ltd
 after Canada's No. 1 grocer revealed plans to create one
of the country's largest real estate investment trusts.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 16.04 points, or 0.13 percent, at 12,173.33
shortly after the open.
