TORONTO, June 23 (Reuters) - Toronto stocks jumped more than 100 points near the open on Monday as investors cheered the Supreme Court of Canada's decision that moved BCE Inc's BCE.TO leveraged buyout closer to completion, while firm oil prices underpinned the resource-heavy market.

Just after the open, the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 102.74 points, or 0.7 percent, at 14,683.41. BCE stock was up C$2.95 at C$37.55 ($1=$1.02 Canadian) (Reporting by Scott Anderson; editing by Janet Guttsman)
