Of the remaining Seagram buildings, one (Seagram Museum) became home of the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) (Centre for International Governance Innovation), while others were converted into condominiums.

Highway 24 (Highway 24 (Ontario)) runs through Cambridge as Hespeler Road, Water Street, and Ainslie Street, connecting to Guelph in the northeast and Brantford (Brantford, Ontario) in the south. Bridges Cambridge has some of the most historic bridges in Waterloo Region. The Black Bridge Road Bridge (1916) is Cambridge’s only truss bridge and has been designated a heritage site since 1997. It is still driven upon, though it is prone to major flooding and subsequent closure in the spring. The Main Street Bridge (Cambridge Main Street Bridge) (1931) is a bowstring arch bridge (Tied-arch bridge) made of concrete and is set over the Grand River. Also in Cambridge is the Park Hill Road Bridge (2002), formally known as the Queen Street Bridge (1933). This bridge was one of the three bridges credited with contributing to the development of early Galt. The bridge was reconstructed and widened to four lanes in 2002 retaining much of the original appearance.

Up until the early 1970s, the highway was much longer than its current length, extending from Goderich (Goderich, Ontario) through Kitchener-Waterloo (Regional Municipality of Waterloo), Cambridge (Cambridge, Ontario), and Hamilton to Niagara Falls. However, in 1970, the Government of Ontario decided that the stretch of Highway 8 between Winona (Winona, Ontario) (just east of Hamilton) and Niagara Falls was no longer of major transportation significance, since by this time most traffic used the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), just to the north, to go between the two locales. Accordingly, the province downloaded this section of the highway to the newly-formed Regional Municipality of Niagara, which designated the road as Regional Road 81 (Niagara Regional Road 81). In 1998, the provincial government of Mike Harris carried another downloading of the highway to municipal authorities; this time the section between the town of Peters Corners (Peters Corners, Ontario) (near Dundas (Dundas, Ontario)) and Winona was transferred to the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth.

It then continues as a normal road out of Cambridge and into Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario), meeting with Highway 5 (Highway 5 (Ontario)) in the town of Peters Corners (Peters Corners, Ontario). Route 25 runs between University of Waterloo and Square One. It also stops at Cambridge (Cambridge, Ontario), the Charles Street Terminal at Kitchener (Kitchener, Ontario), and Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario). The frequency of this route depends on the direction of travel, as well as the day of the week, ranging from hourly to every three hours. Routes 25B, 25C, and 25D provide extra express services between Square One and the two aforementioned Waterloo universities, bypassing Kitchener and Cambridge. Route 25 runs year-round, seven days a week, while the express branches only run during the academic year.

There is also a Modern Re-enacting unit that recreates the Rangers; they are based out of Amherstburg, Ontario and work in conjunction with Fort Malden. Western Districts Late in 1813, the Americans captured Amherstburg and defeated the retreating British army under Major General Henry Procter (Henry Procter (British Army officer)). Until the end of the war, only small outposts of British regulars were stationed in the Western Districts of Kent, Essex and Norfolk. During 1814, American troops made several raids from Detroit or Lake Erie against these, causing much destruction. The local militia could not stop a determined expedition (for example, that which resulted in the Battle of Malcolm's Mills), but could stop small scale nuisance raids. Volunteer units from the militia, styling themselves for example the "Loyal Essex Volunteers", provided useful intelligence throughout the later period of the war. The Loyal Kent Volunteers took part in the Battle of Longwoods. He was born in Scotland. He settled in Richmond (Richmond, Ontario) and married Margaret Lindsey Hill of Amherstburg daughter of Maria Hill (Maria Hill, Daughter of the Regiment). Edward and Margaret opened a general store which supplied the workers during the building of the Rideau Canal. They later moved to Bytown (now Ottawa)where he served with the Carleton militia, becoming captain in 1837. He represented Carleton (Carleton (Ontario electoral district)) in the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada from 1834 to 1841 and in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada from 1848 to 1854 *''Prominent men of Canada a collection of persons distinguished in professional and political life, and in the commerce and industry of Canada'', GM Adam (1892) p. 152 . He also served as the first sheriff for Carleton County. He died in 1867 and was interred at the National Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa.

The second generation model uses a version of the GM High Feature engine, built in Japan and shipped to CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada, where the XL7 is assembled with the Equinox and Torrent, and also the second-generation Suzuki XL7 is Suzuki's second entry in the crossover SUV segment, after the second generation Suzuki Grand Vitara (Suzuki Escudo).

The metal bodies are made at CAMI, trucked two hours east to Oshawa, where they are inserted on the conveyor just before the paint shop. The bodies are painted and then go through the general assembly process at the Oshawa plant. The entire process was developed as quick way to respond to high demand for the Equinox product. The CAMI facility does make Equinox and GMC Terrain from start to finish at their own plant, but they did not have the capacity to put more bodies through paint and general assembly. - Ingersoll (Ingersoll, Ontario) Paul Holbrough (X) -
