TORONTO, July 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
in early trade on Friday, led higher by mining and energy
shares, as risk sentiment improved after data from China showed
the world's No. 2 economy slowed in the second quarter but
avoided a dramatic slowdown.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 53.58 points, or 0.5 percent, at 11,479.05,
shortly after the open.
