Stony Plain (electoral District)
Stony Plain originally styled Stonyplain is a provincial electoral district in Alberta, Canada. The district is mandated to return a single member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta using the first past the post method of voting. From 1926 to 1957 Single Transferable Vote was used in the district.
The district was created in 1905 when Alberta became a province. The riding in its original boundaries stretched from the west Edmonton city limits to the British Columbia border. In 100 years the riding has significantly decreased in size to a small fraction of its former area. The riding was named Stonyplain from 1905 to 1909 before being changed to Stony Plain in the 1909 boundary re-distribution.

Famous quotes containing the words plain and/or stony:
“Be plain in dress, and sober in your diet;
In short, my deary, kiss me and be quiet.”
—Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (16891762)
“Consider the islands bearing the names of all the saints, bristling with forts like chestnut-burs, or Echinidæ, yet the police will not let a couple of Irishmen have a private sparring- match on one of them, as it is a government monopoly; all the great seaports are in a boxing attitude, and you must sail prudently between two tiers of stony knuckles before you come to feel the warmth of their breasts.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
