PC leader Jim Prentice says he's the only one of the party leaders able to balance the need to keep a lid on spending and to protect frontline public service jobs at the same time.
In yet another attack on his opponents in the NDP and Wildrose Parties, he says both those parties have no plan to deal with Alberta's fiscal problems resulting from low oil prices.
He posed for pictures with a middle class family in Innisfail as part his efforts to portray himself as a champion of working Albertans.
He also dismissed any suggestions his popularity is down as a result of his plans to raise taxes and run a huge deficit.
A poll released Wednesday has him running third behind the Wildrose and NDP.
Do polls mean anything this early in an election?
