Calgary-Greenway is a provincial electoral district in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The district was created in the 2010 boundary redistribution and is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first past the post voting system.

The district includes the neighbourhoods of Taradale, Coral Springs, Monterey Park, Abbeydale, and Applewood Park.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 2010 Alberta boundary re-distribution. It was created from parts of Calgary-Cross, Calgary-McCall and Calgary-Montrose which was completely abolished.

The antecedent electoral districts that comprise Calgary-Greenway have been returning Progressive Conservative candidates to office since the 1970s. Greenway was represented by Manmeet Bhullar until his death on November 23, 2015. He was first elected in a closely contested election in 2008 in the old riding of Calgary-Montrose. Prabhdeep Gill won the subsequent by-election for the PCs, which saw a slight increase in support for the Wildrose and a decrease of support for the Progressive Conservatives and the New Democrats from the 2015 election.[1]
