History

Calgary-Currie includes communities such as Sunalta and Westgate. It has largely elected PCs since 1971, with the exception of two Liberal wins, in 2004 and 2008.

The PC’s Christine Cusanelli won in 2012 with 45 per cent of the vote. She had also served as the minister for Tourism, Parks and Recreation.

This riding was part of the 2015 orange crush, which saw the Alberta NDP stomp out a 44-year Progressive Conservative dynasty in the province.

The riding is named after Currie Barracks on the west side of Crowchild Trail.
