TORONTO, June 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
in early Friday trade as positive sentiment following hopes of
continued U.S. Federal Reserve stimulus helped offset a steep
decline in BlackBerry shares after the smartphone maker
reported disappointing results.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 18.06 points, or 0.15 percent, at 12,023.84
shortly after the open. BlackBerry shares were down 24 percent.
