TORONTO, April 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Thursday, boosted by a bump in Potash Corp
 shares after the fertilizer maker beat profit
expectations in a tough quarter, while upbeat earnings from U.S.
tech giants also aided sentiment.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 6.97 points, or 0.05 percent, at 14,541.54
shortly after the open.
