TORONTO, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Tuesday, led by the energy sector, which was supported
by Nexen Inc after U.S. regulators approved a $15.1
billion takeover of the oil and gas company.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 6.20 points, or 0.05 percent, at 12,754.35
shortly after the open. The index briefly turned negative before
slipping back into positive territory.
