May 29 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Wednesday, as weak oil prices dragged down energy shares, while investors awaited an interest rate decision from the Bank of Canada.
* At 9:36 a.m. ET (1336 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX Composite index was down 116.52 points, or 0.71%, at 16,180.94.
* The energy sector dropped 1.7%, the most among the 11 major sectors.
* Oil prices fell nearly 3% after China signaled it would use the rare earths card in its trade war with the United States, stoking concerns that an ongoing stand-off could hurt crude demand.
* Uncertainty due to trade conflicts has worried the Bank of Canada, which is widely expected to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.75%. The rate decision is due at 10 a.m. (1400 GMT).
