Liberals say their fall priority will help Canada’s most vulnerable as the House of Commons meets again today.

Many will watch for sparks to fly between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and new Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre.

Those hoping for that first confrontation will have to wait until Thursday, because Trudeau is in New York today and tomorrow for the UN General Assembly.

All political parties say the cost of living crisis is their top priority, and three government bills on the immediate agenda are about new benefits.

The Liberals will kick off the day with a debate on an old bill to create a new federal benefit for people with disabilities.

They also plan to introduce legislation to temporarily increase the GST discount for low-income Canadians and create an emergency aid for young children, while developing a full national dental program.
