CORRECTED-Canada annual inflation rate falls to 2.2 pct in September

 (Corrects that inflation rate was 2.8 percent in August, not
July, in first paragraph)
    OTTAWA, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Canada's annual inflation rate in
September fell to 2.2 percent from 2.8 percent in August as
pressures from gasoline, air transportation and travel tour
indexes eased, Statistics Canada said on Friday.
