Electoral history[edit]

The electoral district was created in the 1986 boundary redistribution. The first election held that year saw Progressive Conservative candidate Rick Orman win a comfortable majority to pick up the seat for his party. He was easily re-elected in the 1989 general election with a larger majority. Orman retired from the legislature at dissolution in 1993.

The 1993 election saw Progressive Conservative candidate Hung Pham win a sizable majority to hold the seat for his party. He was re-elected three more times winning in the 1997, 2001 and 2004 general elections. He retired from the legislature in 2008 after a bitter fall out with the Progressive Conservatives.

The 2008 election saw Progressive Conservative candidate Manmeet Bhullar win a hotly contested race over Independent Ron Leech. The pair had been in a disputed nomination race before the general election.

2004 Student Vote[edit]

Participating Schools[10]
St. Martha School

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.
