Premier Alison Redford says she will make an “important announcement” at 6 p.m. MT in the rotunda of the Alberta legislature.

Redford, who has been dogged by questions about her leadership, alerted the media just before 5 p.m. She will not be taking questions afterwards.

CBC will be broadcasting Redford's announcement live on television as well as streaming it online 

The announcement comes as Progressive Conservative riding association presidents in Calgary plan to vote on whether Redford has lost the confidence of the membership and should be asked to resign.
