CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher on U.S. jobs data
TORONTO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened higher on Friday after a weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs report lessened fears of an immediate pullback in stimulus measures by the Federal Reserve, driving gains in most major sectors. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 25.95 points, or 0.20 percent, at 12,871.01 shortly after the open.
