TORONTO, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Friday as a U.S. decision to conduct air strikes in
Iraq helped push up oil prices and shares of energy companies. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 20.66 points, or 0.14 percent, at 15,139.09
shortly after the open.
