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: Quote) 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)
