 TORONTO, July 15 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
rose at the open on Wednesday as firmer prices for oil and
other commodities helped propel the resource-heavy index to its
highest level in just over a week.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 126.59 points,
or 1.27 percent, to 10,112.74 at the open, its highest level
since July 6. All of the TSX's 10 subindexes were higher, led
by a 2.7 percent rally in the mining-laden materials group.
