TORONTO, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Monday as positive Chinese economic data and
the reelection of German Chancellor Angela Merkel offset
concerns about the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary strategy and
a decline in shares of BlackBerry.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 12.67 points, or 0.10 percent, at 12,819.14
shortly after the open.
