Trudeau faces first questions about throne speech as Parliament returns | FULL

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government are expected to face questions about their speech from the throne and other parliamentary issues as MPs meet in Ottawa on Wednesday for the first question period of the new Parliament.

While the 2021 election returned MPs to the House of Commons with an almost identical composition from the previous Parliament, about 50 new MPs will get to experience their first sitting as the Opposition is expected to hammer the government over the vision outlined by the throne speech.

Nineteen months into the economic ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trudeau laid out a vision for rebuilding the country towards the “economy of the future.”

But the vision outlined in the throne speech on Tuesday comes amid growing concerns about the cost of living, housing affordability, and rising inflation — all while the Liberals yet again face the challenges of governing in an unpredictable minority government.

Social programs and benefits make up less of the speech this year compared to last, while broader pledges around tackling affordability and pursuing an “economy of the future” dominate.

Conservative MPs are also expected to use Wednesday to raise issue with continuing a hybrid model of Parliament used through much of the COVID-19 pandemic, saying it makes it more difficult to hold the government to account.
