Wikipedia doesn't know everything?

Doing a little thing on oil and Alberta, I checked Wikipedia for a couple of details about Eric Harvie, founder of the Glenbow Museum and the original Alberta oil zillionaire, who acquired most of the province's subsurface rights during the Depression and cashed in bigtime upon the Leduc strike of 1947. What comes up:
Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. Please search for Eric Harvie in Wikipedia to check for alternative titles or spellings.
I had thought Wikipedia had something on everything by now.

That starts me wondering how many other Canadian topics Wikipedia has not yet covered. Anyone? Okay I'm not there either, tho' 13 other Christopher Moores (!)are, but that's a different order of magnitude.
