TORONTO, March 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Tuesday, with strength in energy and financials
offsetting a decline in the materials sector, as equity
investors largely shrugged off a crucial vote in Cyprus that
threatened to push the island into default.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 30.40 points, or 0.24 percent, at 12,812.16
shortly after the open.
