And here are the riding-by-riding results. Remember, only Edmonton Centre, Strathcona, East, and St. Albert are nearly all urban ridings. Edmonton Leduc, Beaumont-Mill Woods, Sherwood Park, and Spruce Grove include large rural population and are "rurban ridings."

For what it's worth, I think "rurban ridings" suck hairy goat ass. The people out in the 'burbs/rural areas around Edmonton think, vote, and live differently than those in Edmonton. We should have separate represenatation, not ridings that slice out a bit of Edmonton and attach a bulky rural-suburban parasitic portion to it.
