TORONTO Jan 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened lower on Monday, with energy stocks leading the drop as oil prices fell on signs of a strong recovery in U.S. drilling.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 40.37 points, or 0.26 percent, at 15,507.51 shortly after the open. Eight of its 10 main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
