Midway through the Alberta election campaign, some candidates say tax hikes have become the dominant issue among voters.
The PC party tabled a budget calling for increases in dozens of taxes, taking a bite out of Albertan's pocketbooks at time the province is shedding thousands of jobs.
It's not sitting well among many and Wildrose candidate Leela Sharon Aheer says it could be a gamechanging issue on voting day.
"People are frustrated. Albertans don't mind paying taxes. They don't mind taxes if they know where it's going but those taxes are going into general coffers, not delegated to places. If you're being charged a health levy, that should go into the health space, lots of tax anger, yeah," says Aheer.
Aheer is running in the riding Chestermere Rocky-View where her main challenger is ex-Wildroser now PC candidate Bruce McAllister.
McAllister says he's hearing concerns at the door about where the province is headed and who has the best plan during a time of low oil prices.
