CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher on oil price, RIM
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: Quote) 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. (Reporting by Irene Kuan; editing by Peter Galloway)
