 TORONTO, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
at the open on Friday, buoyed by January Canadian employment
data that came in much stronger than expected even though U.S.
figures showed lower-than-expected jobs growth south of the
border. [ID:nN04126209] [ID:nN0366997]
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE was up 2.84 points, or 0.02 percent, at 13.844.19 at
the open.
