Chart.js questions

Hi I am currently using the chart.js script within one of my wordpress projects and was wondering two things.

Firstly I have this label for it, and was wondering if there was a way to set it so that if there is only one vote the label is 'vote' and not 'votes' and anything with more than one count had the label 'votes'?

tooltipTemplate: "<%if (label){%><%=label%> <%}%>(<%= value %> bids)",

Secondly I was wondering if there was a way to set a specific bar to one colour? At the moment I have them all the same colour using:

fillColor   : "rgba(52,104,175,0.7)",

but wondered if I could set a bar matching a certain value to be a unique colour?

Thanks! Gary

Could you share example code somehow with something like JS Bin or Plunker? Judging from the Chart.js documentation, it looks like it should be possible to assign a different fillColor for each bar.
