TORONTO Feb 6 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index jumped more than 135 points at the open on Wednesday, as rosy earnings from BCE Inc BCE.TO and others took the focus off worries over a recession.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 135.36 points, or 1.1 percent, at 13,067.31, recovering more than a third of its losses from the previous session.
