I first saw her on the CBC & UPN network show, Heartland (now airing on Up TV and was happy to see her on GH. Good luck to her and maybe the ION network will air her show since they have aired other Canadian shows like Private Eyes with Jason Priestley (now) and Erica Durance’s show Saving Hope for 5 seasons.
