TORONTO, March 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Wednesday, led by energy and financials, as
fears of a Cyprus default were overshadowed by expectations that
the U.S. Federal Reserve will sustain its bond-buying stimulus
plan and by a jump in BlackBerry shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 47.82 points, or 0.37 percent, at 12,821.69
shortly after the open.
