This riding extends west from Edmonton's city limits along the Yellowhead Highway. Most of its western boundary is lined by the Pembina River, while its southern boundary is the North Saskatchewan River. Its residents come from a mix of towns, villages, acreages and farms, as well as several native reserves. In the 2010 electoral boundary changes, the riding kept 95 per cent of its area.
This riding has existed since 1905, and was dominated by the Conservatives since 1971, except for a New Democrat win by Stan Woloshyn in 1989. In February 1993, Woloshyn announced he was joining the PC caucus. As a Tory, he won in 1993, 1997 and 2001. In 2004, Tory Fred Lindsay defeated Liberal Bill Fraser by 2,200 votes. In the 2008 election, Lindsay won an even greater victory, beating Fraser by 5,915 votes. Lindsay announced in June 2011 he wouldn't run again.
