major physical

. Hamilton is situated in the geographic centre of the Golden Horseshoe and is roughly the midway point between Toronto and Buffalo, New York, although slightly closer to the former. Its major physical features are Hamilton Harbour, marking the northern limit of the city, and the Niagara Escarpment running through the middle of the city across its entire breadth, bisecting the city into 'upper' and 'lower' parts. The maximum high point is 250m (820') above the level of Lake Ontario. The '''Niagara Hostel''' is a hostel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. The establishment provides inexpensive lodging for travellers and tourists, in particular backpackers (backpacking (travel)). The hostel is close in proximity to the international border between Canada and the United States, allowing guests access to the Southern Ontario and Western New York areas. '''Alliance Hockey''' is a minor level ice hockey organization based out of Southern Ontario. The league is sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada. In 1991, tired of the indecisiveness of the Ontario Hockey Association in creating the next Junior "A" league, the now renegade Metro Junior "B" league declared themselves Southern Ontario's only Tier II Junior "A" league. The league even helped form the Canadian Junior A Hockey League in 1993. The forwardness of the new Junior "A" league drew the interest of the Aurora franchise. They joined the league in 1992, reverting back to the old "Tigers" nickname. The Tigers won the Metro league title in 1997 and moved to the OPJHL—a year before the Metro folded. The '''Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League''' was a Tier II Junior "A" ice hockey that lasted from the late 1960s until 1977 in Southern Ontario, Canada. The league was swallowed by what is now called the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League in 1977. It is home to 1,700 different trees and shrubs (species, subspecies). Almost all of the trees and shrubs are indigenous to Southern Ontario. There is an emphasis on woody plants at the Arboretum. The Arboretum has a large plant collection (over 40 collections) and these include native plant as well as introduced species. The collections are used for research, public education, landscape examples, habitat restoration examples and genetic diversity of rare plants. The collections provide a variety of form and color. The collection labels are very detailed and include not only the common English name, but the Latin botanic name as well as the family name (common and Latin) as well as the natural distribution. Some of the collections include the Dogwood Family Collection and the Bean Family Collection. There are plant collections as well as a horticultural collection. Summary Unlike the majority of Haldimand or Norfolk County, Nanticoke a highly industralized community. Its industries supply up to 4000MW of electric energy to Southern Ontario through the Nanticoke Generating Station. This community is southeast of Simcoe (Simcoe, Ontario) in neighbouring Norfolk County (Norfolk County, Ontario) and south of Brantford (Brantford, Ontario). Nanticoke's residential area is bordered on the west by the Nanticoke Industrial Park, home to the U. S. Steel Canada Lake Erie Works (Stelco Lake Erie Works) and a number of smaller businesses, including Nelson Steel, Charles Jones Industrial , ESM, and Air Products. The neighbouring Esso Refinery Nanticoke on the northeast, and the Nanticoke Generating Station on the southeast are not part of the Industrial Park land, although this is frequently confused due to their proximity. thumb View of downtown Toronto (File:Toronto - ON - Toronto Skyline2.jpg) '''Toronto (w:Toronto)''' is the most populous city (w:List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population) in Canada and the provincial (w:Provinces and territories of Canada) capital (w:capital city) of Ontario (w:Ontario).

Though not part of the official minor league system, those who are in the know consider its level of play to be comparable to low A-level. The league was formed in 1993, and is the oldest currently running independent league. The network has its origins in a regional television station (CIII-DT) of the same name, serving Southern Ontario, which launched in 1974. The Ontario station was soon purchased by the now-defunct CanWest Global Communications (Canwest), and that company gradually expanded its national reach in the subsequent decades. The national entity was known as the '''CanWest Global System''' until adopting the Ontario station's branding in 1997. thumb left 150px The original logo (1974-1997) of Global featured a stylized "G". (File:Global original.PNG) In the 1970s, a call went out for "third" television stations in several major cities in Canada. A group of investors, led by Al Bruner and Peter Hill (Peter Hill (journalist)), founded Global Communications Ltd. with the idea of building a cross-Canada, all-UHF (Ultra high frequency) network. The group had to settle for a six-transmitter network in Southern (Southern Ontario) Ontario, stretching from Windsor (Windsor, Ontario) to Ottawa, but were denied a transmitter in Maxville (Maxville, Ontario) that would reach Montreal. The group promised a high level of Canadian content and agreed not to accept local advertising. The new network, called the Global Television Network, launched on January 6, 1974 when CKGN-TV (CIII-DT) signed on from studios (a former factory) in Don Mills (Don Mills, Ontario) at 6 PM The '''Niagara Hostel''' is a hostel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

What may be the world's first long-distance intercity dual carriageway freeway is the Queen Elizabeth Way in Southern Ontario in Canada, initially linking the large cities of Toronto and Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario) together by 1939, with construction on this stretch of the present-day Queen Elizabeth Way beginning in 1936 as "Middle Road". After the First World War, Reginan Roland Groome returned from military service as a flying instructor in Southern Ontario and, with partners, set up a company called the "Aerial Service Co." Its primitive airfield was located near what is the current intersection of Hill Avenue and Cameron Street in the city's southern Lakeview district. In May 1920, federal government regulators assigned this field the designation of Canada 's first licensed "air harbour". Groome also received Canadian commercial pilot's licence (Pilot licensing in Canada) No. 1 and mechanic Robert McCombie was given air engineer's licence No. 1. left thumb The 1940 Art Deco (Image:Regina airport, 1940.jpg) administration building and control tower at the Regina Municipal Airport Regina Airport '''Quinte West''' is a city, formerly part of Hastings County, but now a Separated municipality (List of Ontario separated municipalities) in Southern (Southern Ontario) Ontario, Canada, .

"Conservatives seek ‘fairness’ in reallocating Commons seats". ''The Globe and Mail'', June 2, 2011. One province, Ontario, uses the same boundaries for the electoral districts for its Legislative Assembly in Southern Ontario, while seats in Northern Ontario correspond to the federal districts that were in place before the 2004 adjustment. The other provinces use different electoral districts for their legislatures. Ontario had separate provincial ridings prior to 1999. The Onondaga Escarpment contains significant outcrops of flint (a type of chert) which bears the escarpment's name. This variety of chert was of great importance to First Nations peoples throughout Southern Ontario, who used it to make stone tools (lithics (Stone tool)) such as projectile points and hide scrapers. This variety of chert, which is of reasonably high-quality and which was highly-valued by First Nations peoples, is often a common variety of chert recovered archaeologically from sites relatively adjacent to outcrops; for example, Onondaga-variety chert comprises 95% of all of the flint material from some sites in Milton, Ontario. The material has also been found as well at some distance from its original source; Onondaga chert has been recovered at the late archaic (Archaic period in the Americas) Duck Lake archaeological site in northern Michigan, The '''Niagara Hostel''' is a hostel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

people based

Ontario was explored and colonized by the French in the 17th century, who forged relations with the Wyandot (Wyandot people) ''Huron'' people, based around the Georgian Bay Lake Simcoe area. Other Iroquoian (Iroquois) speaking people to the south were the Petun and Neutral Nation (Attawandaron), and further northeast, Algonquin (Algonquian peoples)s inhabited the upper Ottawa River Madawaska Valley areas and the Mississaugas moved south from northern Lake Huron, settling lands in both the Kawartha (Kawartha Lakes) region and just west of Toronto. Following the Seven Years' War, the British wrested control of Southern Ontario, and greater colonization efforts were spurred on by the arrival of United Empire Loyalists brought on by the American Revolution.

Southern Ontario

'''Southern Ontario''' is a region of the province (Provinces and territories of Canada) of Ontario, Canada. It is the most densely populated and southernmost region in Canada. Situated south of Algonquin Park, it covers between 14 to 15% of the province, depending on the inclusion of the Parry Sound (Parry Sound District, Ontario) and Muskoka (District Municipality of Muskoka) districts.

Southern Ontario differs greatly from Northern Ontario, in that it has a larger population, different climate, and different culture than its northern counterpart. It is broken into smaller subregions, including Central Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Southwestern Ontario, and the Golden Horseshoe.
