 TORONTO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened higher on Friday as stronger oil prices, supported by
the prospect of increased winter demand, boosted shares of
Suncor Energy SU.TO and other oil companies.
 The index was also supported by Research In Motion
RIM.TO, which jumped after the company reported a
better-than-expected profit late on Thursday.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 55.86 points,
or 0.49 percent, at 11,528.92 at the open.
