TORONTO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Tuesday after U.S. jobs data for September came in
weaker than expected, bolstering expectations that the Federal
Reserve will stick to its current monetary stimulus for longer.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 53.61 points, or 0.41 percent, at 13,240.22
shortly after the open.
