2010-07-09: Controller was handed off a VFR flight (N945CC) enroute from Québec (CYQB) to Halifax (CYHZ) at 17,000 ft. from Boston and was informed that the aircraft was landing in Fredericton (CYFC). There was a departing JZA flight (JZA957) enroute from Fredericton Toronto (CYYZ) that was climbing to 28,000 ft. and cleared to remain south of the incoming N945CC.
