TORONTO, Jan 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened

sessions, boosted by a jump in Valeant Pharmaceuticals
International Inc after the drugmaker gave a profit
forecast for 2014. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 71.25 points, or 0.53 percent, at 13,566.79
shortly after the open.
