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. (Reporting by Irene Kuan; editing by Peter Galloway)
