TORONTO, May 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Wednesday as shares of Encana Corp jumped
after the company's $3.1 billion U.S. shale deal, with investors
also awaiting congressional testimony from U.S. Federal Reserve
Chair Janet Yellen.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 20.66 points, or 0.14 percent, at 14,632.95
shortly after the open.
