 TORONTO, May 6 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
turned positive shortly after the open on Thursday as strong
corporate earnings helped the index fight back from its recent
selloff on Greek debt fears.
 At 9:35 a.m. (1335 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's
S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 2.89 points at
11,878.02.
 The resource-heavy index fell some 30 points at the open,
with energy issues weakening on fears that Greece's debt crisis
may spread to other euro-zone countries and hurt economic
recovery.
