Run on red clothing has Premier Robert Ghiz talking about Olive Crane's big news

Published on November 25, 2014

Independent MLA Olive Crane says she has a big announcement to make, but what it will be is anyone’s guess.

Crane recently posted on Facebook that she planned to make what she called an exciting announcement Wednesday during her statement time in the legislature.

She stoked speculation by later saying it was a “huge announcement,” refusing to give any hints about what she will say and telling people they will have to wait until Wednesday.

In the legislature Tuesday afternoon, Premier Robert Ghiz said there was quite a bit of buzz about Crane’s post.

He also seemed to hint that the Liberals’ colour might have something to do with it.

“She’s being tight lipped on it but there’s rumours floating around amongst a lot of Charlottetown retailers that there’s a shortage of red clothing,” Ghiz said.

“I don’t know if that may have to do with the announcement or perhaps red is a great colour for the Christmas season.”

For Crane’s part, she showed no reaction to the premier’s comments.
