TORONTO, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main equity index
opened higher on Friday, boosted by gold miners as bullion hit a
six-month high and investors cheered the prospect of further
monetary easing in both Europe and the United States.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 81.09 points, or 0.67 percent, at 12,220.82
shortly after the open, its highest level since early May.
