The Manitoba New Democrats say they would restore classroom size limits and add more classrooms if elected on Sept. 10.

Leader Wab Kinew says limits would be for kindergarten to Grade 3 classrooms, so that students could have more one-on-one time with teachers.

He says the most important investment for Manitoba’s future is its children.
