TORONTO, April 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index shot higher on Thursday as upbeat economic data prompted fresh fund flows into commodities at the start of the quarter, but a steep drop by Research In Motion RIM.TO RIMM.O tempered the gains.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 108.48 points, or 0.9 percent, at 12,0146.21
