CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher on commodities, Potash drags

TORONTO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose at the open on Monday, helped by firmer commodities prices, but a decline in Potash Corp (POT.TO) on news BHP Billiton (BLT.L) scrapped its bid for the fertilizer giant weighed on the market.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 2.13 points to 12,751.37 at the open. It later weakened to trade lower on the day.
