|-|Gold was born to Jewish parents in Brockville, Ontario in 1947, and grew up in Outremont, a Montreal neighbourhood of various socioeconomic classes but which is predominantly upper middle-class. His father was a businessman who made trips to China in the early 1970s, long before such an economic practice became popular. He lost his mother at a young age and was subject to many other “family difficulties. ” Reportedly, as a child in the 1950s, Gold was treated at the Allan Memorial Institute, a Montreal psychiatric facility. As a result, there is some contemporary speculation that he may have undergone the controversial LSD (and other) experiments of the institution's director, Dr. Ewen Cameron, an employee in the CIA's MKULTRA program. |+|
