Downtown Edmonton with some of the nearer suburbs is always a swing seat. The Liberals held it through the Chretien/Martin years and the Conservatives won it when Harper was PM. Liberal Randy Boissonnault won it in 2015 defeating Conservative James Cumming. In their rematch in 2019 Cumming won. Now they are running against each other for the third time. The NDP runs a strong third here and a strong showing by them could prevent the Liberals from regaining the seat.
