TORONTO Jan 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened higher on Thursday as solid U.S. economic data boosted sentiment and recent comments from the Federal Reserve signaled that the central bank was in no hurry to raise interest rates.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 140.74 points, or 0.99 percent, at 14,425.74 shortly after the open. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
