|23rd||1993-1997||Yvonne Fritz||Progressive Conservative|
Calgary-Cross was created from the electoral districts of Calgary-McCall and Calgary-Montrose in the 1993 boundary redistribution. The first and so far only representative has been Progressive Conservative member Yvonne Fritz. Prior to representing Montrose she served as an Alderman for the city of Calgary representing the Ward 5 electoral district.
The 1993 election saw Fritz win with a large majority of votes. She sought a second term in 1997 and while her popularity declined she still won very easily over Liberal Keith Jones.
Jones and Fritz would face each other again in the 2001 general election. She would go on to win the district with the largest majority of her career while Jones saw his popular vote collapse. Fritz would win a fourth term in the 2004 general election, seeing almost half her vote disappear.
Fritz became a cabinet minister for the first time in 2004. She won re-election again in 2008.

On November 19, 2004 a Student Vote was conducted at participating Alberta schools to parallel the 2004 Alberta general election results. The vote was designed to educate students and simulate the electoral process for persons who have not yet reached the legal majority. The vote was conducted in 80 of the 83 provincial electoral districts with students voting for actual election candidates. Schools with a large student body that reside in another electoral district had the option to vote for candidates outside of the electoral district then where they were physically located.
