TORONTO, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
sharply higher on Thursday on broad gains led by financial
stocks, bolstered by signs of progress in the U.S. government's
deadlock over the federal budget and debt ceiling.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 opened up 0.6 percent, or 81.13 points, at 12,811.47.
Nine of the index's 10 main groups were in positive territory
with the heavily weighted financial group up 0.8 percent.
