TORONTO, June 5 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index rose sharply on Thursday morning, aided by energy stocks as the price of crude oil rebounded.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 101.68 points, or 0.7 percent, at 14,792.14. The volatile shares of Research In Motion RIM.TO led the rise, up 2 percent, but the energy sector added broad support, up 1 percent as a group.
