TORONTO, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Monday after expectations that the U.S. Federal
Reserve will delay its plans to scale back its stimulus program
offset a sharp drop in shares of BlackBerry Ltd, which
called off a sale of the company.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 33.27 points, or 0.25 percent, at 13,370.73
shortly after the open.
