"Everything I do is autobiographical in some way. 'Wayne's World' was me growing up in the suburbs of Toronto and listening to heavy metal, and 'Austin Powers' was every bit of British culture that my father, who passed away in 1991, had forced me to watch and taught me to love."
– Mike Myers
Born: May 21, 1914 in Montreal, Quebec (passed away on November 29, 1971).

– Luc Guimond, Olivier Guimond’s Son
Born: March 4, 1954 in Toronto, Ontario.
