TORONTO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index edged
higher at the open on Tuesday, led by higher energy stocks and
firmer oil prices, while overall sentiment was bolstered by
progress in U.S. congressional budget talks.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 5.60 points, or 0.05 percent, at 12,286.95
shortly after the open.
