 TORONTO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened lower on Thursday as the U.S. dollar soared to a
three-month high against the euro, hurting commodity prices,
and weighing on shares of Suncor Energy SU.TO and other
energy companies.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 74.06
points, or 0.64 percent, at 11,562.98 at the open.
