CHARLOTTETOWN -- She might be limited to one oral question and two supplementary questions twice a week in the Provincial Legislature, but independent Progressive Conservative MLA Olive Crane manages to summit written questions daily while the House is in session. 

So far she has submitted 100 written questions to all government departments.

“There are many issues facing all Islanders, including issues that affect low-income and vulnerable people but I feel as an Independent Opposition it is also important that I ask questions for all Islanders,” Crane indicated.

Expressing her commitment to holding government accountable for the decisions it makes, she vowed to continue monitoring progress, watch timelines and the government’s ability to deliver on the issues. “That is what I was elected to do and that is what I will do,” Crane insisted.

She’s also been offering suggestions to government on programs, policy and services she believes would improve the lives for Islanders. Those include suggesting a basic living income pilot program and implementing mental health services for mothers dealing with postpartum depression.
