TORONTO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Tuesday, boosted by hopes of a resolution to the U.S.
debt crisis and a jump in shares of Talisman Energy Inc 
after Carl Icahn disclosed a stake in the company.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 10.52 points, or 0.08 percent, at 12,798.77
shortly after the open.
