|After Edmonton Centre/East/Strathcona, the fourth most likely Edmonton riding to fall to the Grits/NDP; it helps that it's totally urban, since what isn't Edmonton is the satellite city of St. Albert. But ‘fourth most likely’ still means ‘not very likely at all’ around these parts.|

|Brent Rathenger should have little trouble winning this since although the Alberta PCs didn't do very well here provincially, Edmonton quite often votes for centre-left parties provincially and centre-right ones federally. After Trudeau's National Energy Program, the name Liberal is almost like a four letter word in Alberta so this pretty much ensures whoever gets the Tory nomination wins even if people aren't hardcore conservatives.|

|John Williams will not be running again. Replacing him is former Tory MLA Brent Rathgeber from Edmonton-Calder who was defeated after one term in the Alberta Legislature by current MLA, NDP David Eggen. That's part of the riding may not bode well for Rathgeber, but I can't see him having much trouble in Edmonton's more affluent areas northern areas, when the houses great REAL big up past 149 ave. and in the suburban/rural areas. Easy win for Rathgeber.|
