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 thumb left Construction is underway to widen the Conestoga River crossing to eight lanes (File:Highway 8 widening.png) Highway 8 then enters Cambridge (Cambridge, Ontario), following city streets such as Shantz Hill Road, Fountain Street, King Street, Coronation Boulevard, and Dundas Street. 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.

Another of the borough's major green spaces, the Domaine Saint-Paul (Boisé de l'Île-des-Sœurs), preserves the natural woodland of Nuns' Island, home to more than a hundred species of birds as well as the scarce brown snake (Storeria). Trails lead through the woodland. The campus of the Douglas Hospital is also a major green space open to the public. Smaller parks are also dotted through the borough. The borough's community centres are the Centre communautaire Marcel-Giroux, near the borough hall; the Centre communautaire Elgar on Nuns' Island; and the Centre culturel de Verdun, in the western part of the borough. The latter two facilities include public libraries and art exhibition spaces.

Government and politics thumb right 260px New Brunswick Legislative Building NB Legislative Building (Image:Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick.jpg), seat of New Brunswick Government since 1882 thumb 240px Fredericton City Hall, a National Historic Sites of Canada National Historic Site of Canada (Image:Fredericton City Hall.jpg), in 2005 Administrative structure Fredericton has a mayor-council and non-partisan form of government, with the mayor and council serving fixed four-year terms (three years until 2004), and elections held in May. The current mayor is Brad Woodside, who first served from 1986 until 1999 but was re-elected in 2004. He has since won two further elections, extending his tenure through to 2016. The city is divided into twelve wards (ward (politics)) (six on each side of the Saint John River), with each ward electing one councillor. The Boyce Farmers Market, open on Saturday mornings, is a place where municipal, provincial and federal politicians frequently visit to mingle with their electorate - something which has evolved into a political tradition. Fredericton and provincial federal politics Provincially, Fredericton elected Progressive Conservatives from 1952 until electoral sweep of the Liberal Party in 1987 when they won every seat in New Brunswick under Frank McKenna. Since then there has been greater political alteration in the provincial electoral landscape in Fredericton. In 1991, the right-wing Confederation of Regions Party (Confederation of Regions Party of New Brunswick) won the riding of Fredericton North (along with several other nearby ridings). In 1999 Progressive Conservatives swept all three Fredericton area seats; however, in 2003, Fredericton-North and Fredericton-Fort Nashwaak returned to the Liberals. Elections New Brunswick Federally, the city forms most of the riding of Fredericton (Fredericton (electoral district)). This riding was formerly known as Fredericton-York-Sunbury but was redistributed prior to the 1997 general election. From 1957 until 1993 Fredericton returned Progressive Conservatives. The 2008 Federal Election saw the Conservative Party of Canada take the seat with former New Maryland MLA Keith Ashfield taking this seat with 42% of the popular vote. Demography The population of Fredericton is 56,224 (2011 Census). Along with Moncton and Halifax (Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia), Fredericton is one of three Maritime cities to register a population increase in recent years. class "toccolours" cellpadding "4" cellspacing "0" style "float:right; margin:0 0 1em 1em; font-size:95%;" - ! colspan "2" style "background:#ccf; text-align:center;" Historical populations - ! style "text-align:center;" Census year !! style "text-align:right;" Population - colspan 2 - style "text-align:center;" 1861 style "text-align:right;" 6,000 - style "text-align:center;" 1871 style "text-align:right;" 6,006 - style "text-align:center;" 1881 style "text-align:right;" 6,218 - style "text-align:center;" 1891 style "text-align:right;" 6,502 - style "text-align:center;" 1901 style "text-align:right;" 7,117 - style "text-align:center;" 1911 style "text-align:right;" 7,208 - style "text-align:center;" 1921 style "text-align:right;" 8,114 - style "text-align:center;" 1931 style "text-align:right;" 8,830 - style "text-align:center;" 1941 style "text-align:right;" 10,062* - style "text-align:center;" 1951 style "text-align:right;" 16,018 - style "text-align:center;" 1956 style "text-align:right;" 18,303 - style "text-align:center;" 1961 style "text-align:right;" 19,683 - style "text-align:center;" 1966 style "text-align:right;" 22,460 - style "text-align:center;" 1971 style "text-align:right;" 24,254 - style "text-align:center;" 1976 style "text-align:right;" 45,248** - style "text-align:center;" 1981 style "text-align:right;" 43,723 - style "text-align:center;" 1986 style "text-align:right;" 44,352 - style "text-align:center;" 1991 style "text-align:right;" 47,510 - style "text-align:center;" 2001 style "text-align:right;" 48,560 - style "text-align:center;" 2006 style "text-align:right;" 50,535 - style "text-align:center;" 2011 style "text-align:right;" 56,224 - align "right" * Boundary change - align "right" ** City amalgamated with surroundings in 1973 Colors id:lightgrey value:gray(0.9) id:darkgrey value:gray(0.8) id:sfondo value:rgb(1,1,1) id:barra value:rgb(0.6,0.7,0.8) ImageSize width:455 height:303 PlotArea left:50 bottom:50 top:30 right:30 DateFormat x.y Period from:0 till:60000 TimeAxis orientation:vertical AlignBars justify ScaleMajor gridcolor:darkgrey increment:10000 start:0 ScaleMinor gridcolor:lightgrey increment:1000 start:0 BackgroundColors canvas:sfondo BarData bar:1861 text:1861 bar:1871 text:1871 bar:1881 text:1881 bar:1891 text:1891 bar:1901 text:1901 bar:1911 text:1911 bar:1921 text:1921 bar:1931 text:1931 bar:1941 text:1941 bar:1951 text:1951 bar:1961 text:1961 bar:1971 text:1971 bar:1981 text:1981 bar:1991 text:1991 bar:2001 text:2001 bar:2011 text:2011 PlotData color:barra width:20 align:left bar:1861 from: 0 till:6000 bar:1871 from: 0 till:6006 bar:1881 from: 0 till:6218 bar:1891 from: 0 till:6502 bar:1901 from: 0 till:7117 bar:1911 from: 0 till:7208 bar:1921 from: 0 till:8114 bar:1931 from: 0 till:8830 bar:1941 from: 0 till:10062 bar:1951 from: 0 till:16018 bar:1961 from: 0 till:18303 bar:1971 from: 0 till:24254 bar:1981 from: 0 till:43723 bar:1991 from: 0 till:47510 bar:2001 from: 0 till:48560 bar:2011 from: 0 till:56224 PlotData bar:1861 at:6000 fontsize:XS text: 6000 shift:(-8,5) bar:1871 at:6006 fontsize:XS text: 6006 shift:(-8,5) bar:1881 at:6218 fontsize:XS text: 6218 shift:(-8,5) bar:1891 at:6502 fontsize:XS text: 6502 shift:(-8,5) bar:1901 at:7117 fontsize:XS text: 7117 shift:(-8,5) bar:1911 at:7208 fontsize:XS text: 7208 shift:(-8,5) bar:1921 at:8114 fontsize:XS text: 8114 shift:(-8,5) bar:1931 at:8830 fontsize:XS text: 8830 shift:(-8,5) bar:1941 at:10062 fontsize:XS text: 10062 shift:(-8,5) bar:1951 at:16018 fontsize:XS text: 16018 shift:(-8,5) bar:1961 at:18303 fontsize:XS text: 18303 shift:(-8,5) bar:1971 at:24254 fontsize:XS text: 24254 shift:(-8,5) bar:1981 at:43723 fontsize:XS text: 43723 shift:(-8,5) bar:1991 at:47510 fontsize:XS text: 47510 shift:(-8,5) bar:2001 at:48560 fontsize:XS text: 48560 shift:(-8,5) bar:2011 at:56224 fontsize:XS text: 56224 shift:(-8,5) TextData fontsize:S pos:(20,20) text:Data from Statistics Canada; increases in 1941 and 1981 were the result of boundary changes. Ethnicity Fredericton's population is predominantly white (White people). However, a black (Black people) minority has had a long presence in the city, primarily in the Barker's Point borough. Willie O'Ree, the first black player in the NHL, was from Fredericton. The largest non-white segment of Fredericton's population is made up of First Nations people, who live primarily on the Saint Mary's Reserve located in the city's north side. In the 1960s and 1970s, an influx of immigrants from Asia and the Middle East began, although their numbers remain small. Since 2000, the city's universities - Saint Thomas University and the University of New Brunswick - have seen a growing number of students from overseas attending. Religion thumb right 220px Christ Church Cathedral (Fredericton) Christ Church Cathedral (Image:Christ Church Cathedral, Fredericton, New Brunswick (2005).jpg) The residents of Fredericton are predominantly Christian, with Protestants forming the largest denomination.

Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is on the south shore and can be accessed by Highway 202 (Saskatchewan Highway 202) and Highway 301 (Saskatchewan Highway 301). Tunnels of Moose Jaw A network of underground tunnels connecting buildings in downtown Moose Jaw was constructed beginning around 1908. They were originally built as an underground steam system that was abandoned. The tunnels were used to hide Chinese railway workers escaping persecution during the Yellow Peril or unable to pay the government-imposed head tax (Head tax (Canada)). Entire families lived in the tunnels and worked at above-ground businesses in exchange for food and supplies. The tunnels became a hub of renewed activity in the 1920s for rum-running during Prohibition in the United States. They were reported to have warehoused illegal alcohol that was then shipped to the U.S. via the Soo Line Railroad. The tunnels were also used for gambling and prostitution, all without interference from the corrupt police chief. WikiPedia:Moose Jaw
