TORONTO, July 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
in early trade on Tuesday, led by energy shares, as commodity
prices climbed on expectations that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke would hint at more monetary stimulus even as the Bank
of Canada left interest rates unchanged.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 44.45 points, or 0.4 percent, at 11,565.63
shortly after the open.
