This west-central Calgary riding is bordered on the south by Glenmore Trail SW and the city limits, on the west by Sarcee Trail SW, on the north by 26th Avenue, 14th Street, Cameron Ave, Cliff Street SW and the Elbow River, and on the east by Macleod Trail SW. It includes Mount Royal, Roxboro, Elbow Park, Parkhill, Windsor Park and Meadowlark Park. The 2010 redistribution kept 71 per cent of the former riding and added 37 per cent of Calgary-Currie.
In 2008, the Tories regained the seat when PC Alison Redford defeated Liberal Craig Cheffins by 419 votes. From March 2008 to February 2011, Redford was minister of justice and attorney general, plus the political minister for Calgary. She resigned from cabinet to run for the PC leadership, which she won. Redford was sworn in as premier on Oct. 7, 2011. Prior to Redford, Cheffins had won the seat in a June 2007 byelection, defeating PC Brian Heninger by 784 votes. The riding prior to that was held by Ralph Klein, who was appointed environment minister by Premier Don Getty after he first won the seat in 1989. Klein won the PC leadership race in December of 1992, and was re-elected in the riding in the elections of 1993, 1997, 2001 and 2004. Klein resigned from the legislature Jan. 15, 2007.
