The Manitoba government will focus on consumer protection and support for schools in a new session of the legislature that starts today.
NDP house leader Jennifer Howard says the government will introduce legislation that will protect people when they buy homes and vehicles -- two of the biggest purchases people will make in their lifetime.
Other legislation will encourage parents to be involved in their children's school.
Some of the details will come this afternoon when the government delivers its annual throne speech.
Politically, there will be a new dynamic in Question Period as Brian Pallister takes over the role of Opposition leader.
Pallister was unopposed in seeking the leadership of the Progressive Conservatives in the summer, replacing Hugh McFadyen.
He says he wants to hold the government to account for its finances and the economy.
The NDP is in the midst of five years of consecutive deficits, and has been trying to find 210 million dollars in spending cuts and asset sales this fiscal year.
