CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as fall in oil prices weigh on energy shares

Jan 28 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index opened lower on Monday, as energy shares were weighed by a drop in oil prices after U.S. companies added rigs, a signal that crude output may rise further.

* At 9:30 a.m. ET (14:30 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 78.79 points, or 0.51 percent, at 15,287.26.
