Calgary North East
Calgary North East Provincial Electoral District was a historical riding covering the north east portion of Calgary. The riding was very short lived, only existing in the election of 1959. In 1963 it became Calgary East.
The historic 1959 redistribution of the provincial ridings of Calgary and Edmonton marked the transition back to First Past the Post. From 1921 to 1959 Calgary and Edmonton, along with a few other ridings in the province elected members with Single Transferable Vote. The redistribution created seven ridings in Calgary, two of those still exist today.
