 TORONTO, Dec 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened higher on Wednesday as a softer U.S dollar helped lift
commodity prices, boosting shares of Suncor Energy (SU.TO: Quote) and
other energy and mining companies.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 1.33 points,
or 0.01 percent, at 11,629.31.
 Immediately after the open, the index briefly dipped into
negative territory before climbing back up.
