The electoral district was created in the 1971 boundary redistribution. The first representative was former Canadian Football League player Don Getty . Getty had previously represented the electoral district of Strathcona West . The 1971 election saw Getty easily win the new district to pick it up for the Progressive Conservatives.

Getty won a larger majority in 1975 and he retired for the first time from the legislature in 1979. His replacement would be Progressive Conservative Peter Knaak who easily held the district for a single term before leaving in 1982. Robert Alexander took over as the Progressive Conservative in 1982.

Alexander resigned November 5, 1985 so that Getty who had just been elected as leader of the Progressive Conservatives and Premier of the province could have his seat back. Getty easily won the by-election held on December 11, 1985. Less than a year later Getty called his first election as Premier. He easily won the district back along with a majority government across the province.

The 1989 general election would turn out to be one of the most memorable in Alberta
Alberta
political history. Getty was defeated in a closely contested race by Liberal candidate Percy Wickman . The result was a surprise as Getty's party had won a majority across the province. The trouble for Getty's campaign started when he skipped an all-candidates forum which Wickman had put a rubber chicken in his place. He was also criticized heavily even by his own party members for running a billion dollars in spending announcements.

Wickman held the seat for one term before running in the Edmonton-Rutherford electoral district in 1993. His replacement was Liberal candidate Mike Percy who won a comfortable margin over Dave Hancock . Percy only held the district for one term.

Hancock would run as the Progressive Conservative candidate for the second time in the 1997 general election. He was re-elected three more times. Hancock became interim Premier of Alberta
Alberta
in March 2015. The end of his tenure came in September of that year when Jim Prentice
Jim Prentice
was elected as leader of the PCs and subsequently sworn in as premier. Hancock resigned from the legislature around the same time. A by-election was held in October, and the successful candidate was Stephen Mandel
Stephen Mandel
, whom Prentice had named as Minister for Health, despite not holding a seat in the assembly. Mandel was defeated in May 2015 by Bob Turner of the NDP .
