TORONTO Dec 9 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Wednesday as firming crude oil prices provided relief for the resource-linked market.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 17.33 points, or 0.13 percent, at 12,939.80, shortly after the open, including a 0.7 percent gain for the energy group. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
