The electoral district was created from Calgary-Shaw in the 1993 boundary redistribution. The first election held that year saw incumbent Progressive Conservative MLA Jim Dinning pickup the new seat for his party. He defeated Liberal candidate Jack Driscoll and three other candidates in a hotly contested race. He retired from the legislature in 1997.
The 1997 saw Progressive Conservative candidate Marlene Graham elected with a landslide majority. She was re-elected with a larger margin in the 2001 general election and retired at dissolution in 2004.
The 2004 election saw Progressive Conservative candidate Dave Rodney win a very large majority to hold the seat for his party. He would win a second term in the 2008 general election.

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.
