'''CHKX-FM''' is a Canadian (Canada) radio station, broadcasting at 94.7 FM (FM radio) from Hamilton, Ontario and licensed (city of license) to "Hamilton Burlington (Burlington, Ontario)." The station airs a country music format branded as '''KX 94.7'''.

The '''Donut Diner''' was a Canadian coffee (coffee (drink)) and doughnut franchise (Restaurant chain) with many locations and kiosks in and around the Niagara Region (Regional Municipality of Niagara) and greater Golden Horseshoe areas of Ontario. It was renowned for its old fashioned style of baked goods, its 1950s-era decor, and unique local flavour. History Highway 8 is one of the oldest provincial highways in Ontario, having first been established in 1918. 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. Ontario Highway 8 History - The King's Highways of Ontario Nevertheless, Toronto has an extensive bicycle culture, and most areas of the city are reasonably bicycle-friendly. The municipal government encourages bicycle use through its Toronto Bike Plan. Some TTC buses have bicycle racks attached to their fronts, and all will be equipped by 2012. Bicycles are allowed on the subway outside of the morning and evening rush hours. Since the late 2000s, the Toronto-Niagara Bike Train Initiative (Toronto-Niagara Bike Train) has helped connect Toronto cyclists with Niagara Region (Regional Municipality of Niagara) bike trails via Via Rail. The '''Niagara Health System '''(NHS) is Ontario's largest multi-site hospital amalgamation, comprising the following seven sites serving 434,000 residents across the 12 municipalities making up the Regional Municipality of Niagara, Canada. '''Michigan Beach''' is a beach and small community on the south shore of Lake Ontario in St. Catharines, Regional Municipality of Niagara, Ontario, Canada and is part of the Golden Horseshoe region. It is located between Port Dalhousie (Port Dalhousie, Ontario) and Port Weller (Port Weller, Ontario). Named for the ''Michiganers'', a group of seasonal workers from the State of Michigan who travelled to Port Dalhousie to work on the Welland Canal during the summer months, the area served as their seasonal community. Today, Michigan Beach is home to the St. Catharines Marina, the Michigan Beach Pier and Lighthouse, and a number of upscale condominiums.

The so-called Screaming Tunnel, located in nearby Niagara Falls, Ontario, was also used as the backdrop for one scene. The school where Johnny teaches at in the beginning of the film is Summitview P.S., located in Stouffville, Ontario. According to a David Cronenberg interview on the DVD, ''The Dead Zone'' was filmed during a relentless deep freeze in Southern Ontario which lasted for weeks, creating an authentic atmosphere of subzero temperatures and icy snow-packed terrain, which made for great natural shooting locations in spite of its being almost too cold for cast and crew to tolerate at times. Canada's Wonderland (Canada's premier amusement park, formerly owned by Taft Broadcasting, and ''Dead Zone'' film distributor Paramount (Paramount Pictures)), which is 30 km north of Toronto's city limits, was also used as a filming location. In an interview on the ''Dirty Harry'' DVD set, director John Badham said that he was attached to direct the film at one stage, but pulled out as he felt the subject matter was irresponsible to show on screen. '''King's Highway 58''', commonly referred to as '''Highway 58''', is a provincially maintained highway (Highways in Ontario) in the Canadian (Canada) province of Ontario. Highway 58 currently runs from the Highway 406 (Ontario Highway 406) junction on the St. Catharines – Thorold boundary to the Highway 406 junction near Turner's Corners (Turner's Corners, Ontario), all within the Regional Municipality of Niagara. A second part runs from the Highway 58A (Townline Tunnel) junction in the south of Welland to the Niagara Regional Road 3, formerly Highway 3 (Ontario Highway 3) junction in Port Colborne (Port Colborne, Ontario). Prior to 1998, Highway 58 was continuous as it travelled through west side of Welland before reaching the Highway 58A junction. However, the province transferred the central section to the city of Welland.
