TORONTO, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Wednesday, led by the materials sector and higher
resource prices, and supported by expectations the Federal
Reserve will announce to a fresh round of U.S. Treasuries
buying.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 31.72 points, or 0.26 percent, at 12,314.08
shortly after the open.
