History

Since the mid-1980s, the constituency has been one of the more left-leaning ridings in Edmonton, having been held by either the NDP (1986-1993, 1997-present) or the Liberals (1993-1997) without interruption.

In the 2015 provincial election, it was the only riding in the province that did not have a Wildrose Party candidate.
