TORONTO Feb 29 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Monday as higher crude oil prices supported energy stocks and after China eased monetary policy in an attempt to spur growth.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 26.45 points, or 0.21 percent, at 12,824.24, shortly after the open. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
