Port Hardy’s Alfred Gagnon wrote Eternal: For Those Who Know They Are to document his intellectual journey on which he formulates a philosophy of living.

The publisher says,” it is a philosophy of living – for those of us living  now, and for others in the future. Gagnon sees a basic need for people to alter their way of thinking; when effected, these changes will, in turn, result in changes in all nations, enabling the world to live together in peace.

“But essentially, Gagnon believes that fundamental change begins with the individual. His credo is simple: ‘Do right and not wrong,’ he writes. ‘Believe in yourself, and do all that you can to ensure that future generations will have a future, regardless of race.

“Ultimately, says Gagnon, mankind’s future can only be ensured by what he proposes as a world society – without gods or religion, having no land borders, and arrived at through the rigorous practice of freedom of thought’.”

Gagnon works as a driver, having been employed previously as a heavy equipment operator. He lives in Port Hardy and enjoys target shooting.

The book is $8.95 and will be available at the Book Nook at Cafe Guido in Port Hardy who have sold out their first batch and are waiting for a new order to arrive.
