The Tories control all of Alberta's ridings, save this one, which they lost narrowly last time.

Will former Conservative party boy MP Rahim Jaffer's controversies overshadow the current neophyte candidate? The riding also has a concentration of leftie voters due to the presence of the University of Alberta; however, exams will be over and students will have gone home by the May 2 election.
