 TORONTO, March 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
pushed higher at the open on Wednesday as the U.S. Federal
Reserve's renewed pledge to keep interest rates low for an
extended period drew investors to riskier assets.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE opened 22.71 points, or 0.19 percent, higher at
12,112.11, its highest level since September, 2008.
