CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as oil prices fall

July 22 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index opened lower on Wednesday after oil prices fell due to a bigger-than-expected U.S. crude inventory build, with escalating tensions between the United States and China further denting sentiment.

* At 9:30 a.m. ET (13:30 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 13.53 points, or 0.08%, at 16,149.43.
