PEACE RIVER- Actor Dakota House, best known for his role on the CBC television series ``North of 60,'' is taking the leap into Alberta politics.

House, 44, is to represent the Alberta Party in the Peace River constituency.

In a video 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.

``North of 60'' ran in the 1990s and chronicled the lives of Indigenous people in the fictional town of Lynx River, NWT.

House appeared in subsequent movies based on the series, worked on other movie projects and had guest roles on TV shows, including ``The X-Files.''

He has also been a motivational speaker for youth and has written a children's book called ``Dancers In the Sky.''
