TORONTO Jan 7 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell at the open on Friday after a weaker-than-expected U.S. employment report hurt investor sentiment and commodity prices, offsetting the effect of more bullish Canadian jobs data.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE opened down 11.99 points, or 0.09 percent, at 13,299.68, extending the losses of the first few trading days of 2011. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Peter Galloway)
