The Cornwall Royals were a junior ice hockey team based in Cornwall, Canada. The team played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 1969 to 1981 and the Ontario Hockey League from 1981 to 1992; this team should not be confused with other Cornwall Royals teams that played in the QSHL, MMJHL, or OHA-B. From 1961 until 1969, the Cornwall Royals were successful members of the Central Junior A Hockey League. After an application to join the OHL was rejected, the franchise became one of the inaugural teams of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1969; the Cornwall Royals were one of the league's premier teams during its tenure in the QMJHL, winning 3 Memorial Cup titles. For the 1981–82 season, the team transferred into the Ontario Hockey League; the Royals suffered through many tough seasons and poor attendance after moving to the OHL. The switch in leagues alienated many die-hard fans from across the Quebec border. Seeking better fortunes, the franchise moved to Newmarket, Ontario to play as the Newmarket Royals in 1992.
In 1994 the team was bought by the Ciccarelli brothers and moved to Sarnia, Ontario as the Sarnia Sting. The Cornwall Royals are one of only 7 clubs to win consecutive Memorial Cup championships, they did so in 1980 and 1981. In total, the Royals won 3 Memorial Cups, 3 President's Cups, 5 division titles while in the QMJHL; the Royals did not win any OHL championships.

Lafayette was the CHL Scholastic Player of the Year in the 1991-92 season, while he was a member of the Cornwall Royals, he played for the Kingston Frontenacs and the Newmarket Royals, all of the OHL. His best year as an amateur came in 1992-93 when he scored 49 goals for the Newmarket Royals and helped Canada win the gold medal at the World Junior Championships. LaFayette was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the 3rd round of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, he scored his first NHL point, an assist, on January 14, 1994 vs. the Edmonton Oilers setting up a two-on-one for Craig Janney and Brendan Shanahan, Shanahan scored the goal.
The Blues had intended for LaFayette to play at their minor league affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen, for the whole season, but due to injuries, he played 38 NHL games with the Blues before being traded. On March 21, 1994, LaFayette was traded with teammates Bret Hedican and Jeff Brown to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for the rights to Craig Janney.

Ontario Highway 404
King's Highway 404 known as Highway 404 and colloquially as the 404, is a 400-series highway in the Canadian province of Ontario connecting Highway 401 and the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto with East Gwillimbury. The 50.1-kilometre controlled-access highway connects with Highway 407 in Markham. Highway 404 provides access to the eastern edge of Richmond Hill and Newmarket and the western edge of Whitchurch-Stouffville, in addition to the southern edge of Keswick. Construction on the freeway began soon after the completion of the Don Valley Parkway, with the first section south of Steeles Avenue opening in 1977. Over the next twelve years, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario undertook a continuous construction program to build the freeway to Davis Drive in Newmarket; this was completed on 24 October 1989. The route has undergone a periodic series of smaller extensions and widening in the years since, now travelling a further 15.5 km north to Woodbine Avenue near Ravenshoe Road in the town of East Gwillimbury.
Future proposals may one day result in an extension to southeast of Beaverton. Highway 404 is one of several freeways in the Greater Toronto Area with High-Occupancy Vehicle lanes; the northbound lane opened on 23 July 2007. Running parallel to Highway 400 15 kilometres to the east, Highway 404 extends 50.1 km on a north–south orientation between Highway 401 and Woodbine Avenue. There are 16 interchanges along its length of the Partial cloverleaf A4 configuration. Exit numbers on the freeway start at 17, suggesting that the length of the Don Valley Parkway was considered in distance calculations; the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario jurisdiction over the freeway begins as the opposing directions of travel diverge south of the Highway 401 interchange. Northbound, two lanes from the DVP are joined by a third from the eastbound collectors of Highway 401; these narrow to two lanes before merging with a single lane from westbound Highway 401 south of Sheppard Avenue. An additional two lanes from eastbound Highway 401 converge and form a separate carriageway with no access to Sheppard.
Southbound, the freeway is divided into two carriageways, both of which provide access to the DVP. The outer carriageway provides access from Sheppard and to Highway 401, including the westbound express lanes, while the inner carriageway is intended for DVP-bound traffic; the HOV lane provides access to westbound Highway 401 via a dedicated tunnel, which passes beneath the other southbound lanes. To the east of Highway 404 is the Consumers Road office park. To the west and north of Sheppard Avenue is Fairview Mall, which has its own connection with the southbound lanes attached to the Sheppard interchange; the highway continues directly north along the old Woodbine Avenue right-of-way to just south of Steeles Avenue, where it diverges to the west before continuing north. From just north of Sheppard, a northbound HOV lane is present alongside the central median. Southbound, the HOV lane continues as far as Highway 401. Alongside Highway 404 to the east is an industrial warehouse and commercial office area, while on the west is a suburban subdivision of North York.
Northbound, the freeway is six lanes wide from Sheppard Avenue to Finch Avenue, where one lane diverges onto an off-ramp, re-emerging north of Finch. Southbound, it is six lanes wide from Steeles south to Sheppard. At Steeles Avenue, the freeway enters the Regional Municipality of York. To the east are industrial units, while on the west are residential suburbs; this land-use persists north to the Highway 407 ETR interchange, a multi-level stack interchange with two flyovers. North of Highway 407, the freeway crosses Highway 7, where the HOV lanes transition to standard through lanes; the freeway passes west of Buttonville Municipal Airport and interchanges with 16th Avenue. It narrows and the central barrier ends; the land-use density continues to drop, with the appearance of some open spaces and farms interspersed with industrial and commercial buildings. By 19th Avenue, just north of the Honda Canada headquarters in Markham, the land-use is agricultural on both sides of Highway 404. Highway 404 continues north, forming the eastern boundary of the municipalities of Richmond Hill and Newmarket and the western boundary of Whitchurch-Stouffville.
North of Wellington Street, the highway reduces in width to four lanes, its configuration north through East Gwillimbury. The route continues, passing east of the community of Sharon curving northeast and terminating at an at-grade intersection with Woodbine Avenue south of Ravenshoe Road. A freeway east of Highway 11 was planned as early as 1954, when the province extended Highway 48 south from Port Bolster. A large cloverleaf interchange was constructed with the Toronto Bypass, plans formulated for a dual highway around the east side of Lake Simcoe, connecting with Highway 11 near Orillia or Gravenhurst; this route was dropped when Metropolitan Toronto began planning for the northern extension of the DVP in 1957, as subdivisions encroached upon Woodbine Avenue north of Highway 401. The six-lane expressway was to follow the alignment of Woodbine from its southern terminus at Lawrence Avenue to north of Steeles Avenue, where the Department of Highways would continue the road as a "new King's Highway".
In 1959, the DOH announced that they would construct and maintain the new route once the DVP was completed to Highway 401 and designate it H
Newmarket Transit was a transit system in York Region, Canada. While Newmarket was smaller than any of the three cities in the southern part of the York region, it had a quality transit service. Service on some of the routes was provided until midnight, with 15-minute service provided on trunk routes during rush hours. Newmarket Transit was merged with York Region's other services to form York Region Transit in 2001. Newmarket Transit began sometime in the early 1970s as a contracted service from the town replacing the Newmarket Town Bus. Newmarket Transit used to operate only 4 routes, numbered A, B, C, D; those routes were renumbered 11, 22, 33, 44. Route 55 - a trunk route from Newmarket Bus Terminal to the 404 Plaza was added; the route included 2 branches - 55A via Davis Drive and 55B via Gorham and Eagle streets which were interlined during late evening and weekend service. As the city expanded, routes 66 and 77 were added to service the new developments west of Yonge Street and south-east of Mulock Drive.
Routes 22 and 33 were cancelled in mid-1990s with the remaining routes adjusted to compensate for the lost services. In 1998 Newmarket Transit restructured its routes to provide direct service to major destinations. Route 55C was added to provide direct service on Mulock Drive between Yonge Street and Leslie Street. Routes 11 and 77 were combined into a single route 77/11 which provided one-way circular service on major streets in eastern part of Newmarket; this route was extended south on Bayview avenue to connect with Aurora Transit. Routes 44 and 66 were restructured to provide service in south-west and north-west parts of the town. While the routes were interlined and the schedule listed them as'44/66' and'66/44', those in fact remained two separate routes. In the fall of 1999 Newmarket Transit assumed the responsibilities over the public transit in the neighboring town of Aurora, restructuring the old circular route into two community bus routes: A1 and A2. Following the merger of the four transit systems, York Region Transit introduced its own route numbers in 2002.
Route 44 retained its number. YRT is considering changing it to route 59 which will include the northern portion of the former route 77/11. Route 55A became route 55. Route 55B became route 56. Route 55C became route 57. Route 66 retained its number for a couple of years it was absorbed by the route 57A. Route 77/11 became route 33. Couple years the route was split and the services were incorporated into route 54, route 57 and route 55. YRT is considering converting the 55B branch into a separate route 59 which will incorporate route 44. Routes A1 and A2 became routes 31 and 32. Both routes were restructured with the arrival of the Viva service.
