 TORONTO, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened lower on Friday morning, pulled down by soft commodity
prices and a weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs report that sparked
caution about the pace of economic recovery.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE opened down 146.66
points, or 1.32 percent, at 10,925.10, extending a 2.8 percent
fall in the previous session.
