 TORONTO, July 31 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
turned higher on Friday morning after a lower open as investors
opted to shrug off data that showed the Canadian economy
contracted in May by more than the market had expected.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 28.73 points,
or 0.27 percent, at 10,705.45 shortly after the open, when it
fell by as much as 50 points.
