TORONTO, March 9 (Reuters) - Toronto's key stock index was higher on Monday morning as a surge in oil prices helped to boost energy shares and erase the index's 1 percent fall at the open.

At 9:51 a.m. (1351 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 78.75 points, or 1.04 percent, at 7,670.22. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Peter Galloway)
