 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.
