TORONTO, March 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock exchanged
opened lower on Thursday in the wake of comments from Federal
Reserve Chair Janet Yellen that raised the possibility that an
increase in U.S. interest rates could come sooner than had been
anticipated.  
     The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was down 45.02 points, or 0.31 percent, at 14,289.08.
