The NDP's best hope for a seat in Calgary says there is a groundswell of opposition to the PCs in his riding.
Joe Ceci is hoping to be the first New Democrat in 22 years to win a seat in Calgary and he says voters are fed up with Jim Prentice.
The riding has been solidly PC for years but Ceci says the proposed tax increases have turned voters against Prentice.
"A lot of people are angry with Jim Prentice and the PCs. They don't like that there's an election now, they think it should've waited. They don't like that there's a budget that will reduce programs and cost more to get less. They don't like that there's 59 levies and increases and all sorts of taxes that are hidden into this budget that the PCs seem to be running on," says Ceci.
A recent poll in the riding has the NDP leading and the Wildrose Party running second.
With two weeks left, there's still time for Prentice to turn things around but he'll have to convince Albertans to swallow some tax tough medicine during a time of low oil prices.
The Wildrose has made the case that in a time of layoffs and a slowing economy, tax hikes are the last thing Albertans need right now.
