of 110&nbsp;km h. Early life Growing up in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Stairs showed athletic ability at an early age, playing Beaver League baseball a year before his age eligibility and excelling in hockey (Ice hockey). After playing Bantam & Midget baseball, at age 16 and 17, he played for the local Marysville Royals of the New Brunswick Senior Baseball League and was voted "Rookie of The Year" in 1984 and the league's Most Valuable Player in 1985. He was also named Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League MVP in 1987 and '88 while playing for the Fredericton Schooners. One of Sickert's closest friends and supporters was newspaper baron Lord Beaverbrook (Max Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook), who accumulated the largest single collection of Sickert paintings in the world. This collection, with a private correspondence between Sickert and Beaverbook, is in the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. In addition to having painted Beaverbrook, Sickert painted portraits of notables including Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies, Hugh Walpole, Valentine Browne, 6th Earl of Kenmare, and less formal depictions of Aubrey Beardsley, King George V, and Peggy Ashcroft. In Canada, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent (Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn) established the first semaphore line in North America. In operation by 1800, it ran between the city of Halifax (City of Halifax) and the town of Annapolis (Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia) in Nova Scotia, and across the Bay of Fundy to Saint John (Saint John, New Brunswick) and Fredericton in New Brunswick. In addition to providing information on approaching ships, the Duke used the system to relay military commands, especially as they related to troop discipline. The Duke had envisioned the line reaching as far as the British garrison at Quebec City. However, the many hills and coastal fog meant the towers needed to be placed relatively close together to ensure visibility. The required labour to build and continually man so many stations taxed the already stretched-thin British military and there is doubt the New Brunswick line was ever in operation. With the exception of the towers around Halifax harbour, the system was abandoned shortly after the Duke's departure in August 1800. WikiPedia: Fredericton commons:Fredericton

As it turned out, this was never to happen. EPA entered the decade with three Handley Page Heralds and two DC-3s. The Heralds were responsible for flights into Iles-de-la-Madeleine (Magdalen Islands), Quebec and Charlo, Chatham and Fredericton, New Brunswick until 1974 when they were sold to British Air Ferries. EPA started jet service into the northern New Brunswick cities while a Hawker-Siddeley 748 (Avro 748) was acquired to replace the Heralds on the flights to Iles-de-la-Madeleine. 1972 and 1973 were good years for EPA. The number of passengers carried grew dramatically every year from 1969 until 1973. The company expanded, starting jet services into Saint John (Saint John, New Brunswick) and Fredericton (New Brunswick) and Stephenville (Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador), (Newfoundland).
