 TORONTO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index opened lower on Friday as weaker commodity prices, caused
partly by a stronger U.S. dollar, pressured shares of Barrick
Gold (ABX.TO: Quote) and other resource stocks.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 67.51 points, or
0.58 percent, to 11,532.79 at the open.
