This rural/urban riding northwest of Edmonton includes a few older neighbourhoods from northern St. Albert (the area west of St. Albert Road and north of McKenny Avenue/Meadowview Drive) and most of Spruce Grove. In the 2010 electoral boundary changes, the riding shortened its name. Its boundaries are virtually the same as before.
Created almost two decades ago, the riding was first held by Liberal Colleen Soetaert in 1993 and 1997. Tory candidate Doug Horner defeated her in 2001 and he has held the seat since then. In 2004, Horner defeated Liberal Ray Boudreau by 599 votes. In 2008, Horner beat Boudreau again, this time decisively, by more than 4,800 votes. In 2011, Horner resigned from cabinet to unsuccessfully run for the Tory leadership. In October 2011, new Premier Alison Redford appointed him deputy premier and president of the treasury board.
