Alberta Actor Dakota House, best known for his role as Trevor 'Teevee' Tenia on the CBC television series “North of 60,” is taking the leap into Alberta politics.
House, who is 44, is running to represent the Alberta Party in the Peace River riding.
In a message posted on his Facebook page, House says he believes in Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel, and adds the party is committed to consulting with Albertans before making changes.
The popular TV series ran in the 1990s and showed the lives of Indigenous people in the fictional town of Lynx River, N.W.T.
Later in the series, House played the role as chief in the community.
In his personal life, the Cree Actor is also a motivational speaker for "Going M.I.L.E.S for youth, and has written a children's book called Dancers In the Sky.
Albertans will head to the polls sometime this spring when Premier Rachel Notley drops the writ. By law, the election must be held before the end of May.
