TORONTO, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
lower on Friday on deepening uncertainty over the chances of a
U.S. budget deal by year-end and a plunge in Research in Motion
 shares the day after the BlackBerry maker reported the
first ever decline in its subscriber numbers.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 fell 66.57 points, or 0.54 percent, to 12,322.14 at
market open.
