Riding Talk
Riding Profile:

This tiny riding, consisting of most of the City of St. Albert, is on Edmonton's northwestern edge. It's bordered on the south and east by the Edmonton city limits, and is separated from the riding of Spruce Grove-Sturgeon-St. Albert by McKenny Avenue and St. Albert Trail.

Household incomes are $82,983 on average, which is well above the provincial norm. Just over six per cent of residents are low income. Retail is the biggest employer, followed by health and social services. Almost 60 per cent of the population was born in Alberta, while another 11 per cent are immigrants. (2001 census)


Political History:

St. Albert has been all over the political map. Tories held this seat from 1971-86, at which time New Democrat Bryan Strong defeated incumbent Myrna Fyfe by 120 votes. Strong didn't run in 1989, but Tory Dick Fowler did, beating Liberal Len Bracko by 2,300 votes. Despite his wide margin of victory and his cabinet position, Fowler lost to Bracko four years later. In 1997, Bracko was ousted by one of the narrowest margins in modern Alberta politics, losing to Tory Mary O'Neill by 16 votes. O'Neill won again in 2001, beating Bracko by more than 2,000 votes. But in 2004, O'Neill was unseated by Liberal Jack Flaherty, who garnered 414 more votes.

In 2004, voter turnout was 52.7 per cent.
