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: Quote) 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.
