Riding Profile:
This central Calgary riding runs along the north bank of the Bow River. It's bordered on the north by 16th Avenue and on the east by Deerfoot Trail. In the 2004 redistribution the riding expanded west to take in areas formerly of Calgary-Bow. Some areas formerly in the north of Calgary-Mountain View are now in Calgary-North Hill. With 41,690 residents, this is Alberta's second-most populous riding.

Professional work, along with health care and social services, are the main employers in Calgary-Mountain View, where the average household earns $63,566 a year - just under Alberta's average. In the riding, 12.4 per cent of residents are low income, even though 68 per cent of adults hold a post-secondary. About one in six residents is an immigrant, while 43 per cent of residents were born in the province.

Political History:
Unlike many Calgary ridings, Calgary-Mountain View has been held by several different parties since its creation in 1971. The incumbent, Conservative Mark Hlady, won office in 1993, upsetting two-term NDP incumbent Bob Hawkesworth by 2,513 votes. In 1997 Hlady fended off Liberal Patricia Ennis by more than 2,000 votes, and in 2001 he defeated Liberal Jennifer Spencer by almost 4,000 votes. Prior to Hlady and Hawkesworth, Calgary-Mountain View was held by the Social Credit Party's Albert Ludwig (1971-75) and by Tories Stan Kushner (1975-82) and Bud Zip (1982-86).

In 2001, voter turnout was 46.2 per cent.
