Liberal Party's critic a Keeper


MONTREAL -- Veteran Canadian actress-turned-politician Tina Keeper on Friday was appointed the broadcasting and cultural critic for the opposition Liberal Party of Canada.

Keeper, best known for her star turn as a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer on the CBC television drama "North of 60," will serve as the Heritage critic for the Liberals.

Keeper left TV for politics in 2006 when she was elected a member of parliament for Churchill, Manitoba.

As the offical Heritage critic, Keeper will face off in the House of Commons against Canadian Heritage Minister Bev Oda, a former TV executive and broadcast regulator.
