TORONTO, May 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Tuesday as signs of support for stimulus programs from
the Japanese and European central banks helped offset weakness
in Bank of Nova Scotia after the lender reported
quarterly results.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 53.92 points, or 0.42 percent, at 12,750.29
shortly after the open.
