TORONTO, June 22 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index opened lower on Monday as resource shares were hit by lower commodity prices and the World Bank cut its 2009 growth forecasts for most economies, dimming hopes for economic recovery.

At 9:32 a.m. (1332 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 205.47 points, or 2 percent, at 10.082.48 (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
