Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, Canada. The electoral district covers the neighborhoods of Beverly Heights, Belmont Park and Clareview Station.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 1996 boundary redistribution from the old electoral district of Edmonton-Beverly-Belmont. In the 2010 boundary redistribution the riding boundaries were extended north into Edmonton-Manning from 137 Avenue to 144 Avenue while the south boundaries were extended to take a large portion from Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood.

The electoral district of Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview was created in the 1997 general election from most of the electoral district of Edmonton-Beverly-Belmont. The district has been somewhat of a swing riding since its creation with the Liberals, New Democrats and Progressive Conservatives all holding a sizable base in the district.

The first Member for the riding was incumbent Julius Yankowsky who had crossed the floor to the Progressive Conservatives from the Liberal. He won the new district in a tight three way race. He won his third term in 2001 with a higher margin of victory.

Despite having three terms of incumbency Yankowsky was unable to win a third term in office. He faced former New Democratic Party leader Ray Martin who defeated him taking just over half the popular vote in the district.

Martin only lasted a term in office when former Edmonton-Manning MLA Tony Vandermeer won re-election defeating Martin in a hotly contested race. Vandermeer was defeated by New Democrat Deron Bilous in the 2012 provincial election.

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.
