OTTAWA - Michael Ignatieff says a Liberal government would pour money into child care and early-childhood education, no matter how massive the federal deficit may be.
The Liberal leader says giving kids an equal start in life would be his top social priority should he become prime minister.
He's not putting a price tag on the promise but insists he'll find the money somehow.
Ignatieff says concern about the deficit - expected to top $55 billion this fiscal year - can't be allowed to stand in the way of efforts to achieve social justice.
He says investing in kids is a "game changer" that will secure the country's economic and social health in the long term.
