TORONTO, July 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Wednesday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke reassured markets by saying the U.S. central bank's
plans for its monetary stimulus program were not set in stone.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 55.96 points, or 0.45 percent, at 12,572.79
shortly after the open.
