Dan Carter releases new book

OSHAWA — Local TV personality and motivational speaker Dan Carter has a new book.

It’s The Right Time Now was released Sept. 23, with a portion of proceeds going to the building of The Hope Centre of Learning, part of the new Oshawa Community Health Centre and Oshawa Senior Citizens Centre at the Conant Centre in south Oshawa.

More than 250 people, including local politicians, turned out for the book launch. The book is the result of Carter’s personal journey and blends reflection, inspiration, education and motivation as he discusses adversity and success in his life. It’s ideal for people who deal with adversity in their lives or realize society isn’t doing enough to help our fellow citizens make the world a better place, Carter said.

The book also contains reflections by Carter’s friend and mentor, Rev. Doug Schneider, head of The Embassy of the Kingdom of God, Taunton Road.

In his life, Carter has overcome a 20-year addiction of drugs and alcohol and has since gone on to raise awareness about mental health and addiction issues throughout Canada. He’s also a TV producer and host.

His book is available at Chapters in Oshawa and online at www.dancarter.ca.

The Hope Centre, the dream of Carter and his partner Paula Beebe, is designed to enhance people’s opportunities for learning, providing books on history, biography, leadership and success stories. Computers and workstations will be provided and afterschool snacks offered. The centre is due to open later this year.
