AFAIK, NY and Ontario reciprocate, in other words, a NY ticket will show up on your Ontario abstract.

That is correct. Ontario has a reciprocal agreement with New York, Michigan and all other Provinces.

The New York ticket will show up as if it's been committed in Ontario. Speeding is a charge that can be transferred. You will receive the equivalent Ontario demerit points as if you had committed the violation here. 50+ will remain speeding and 6 demerit points, but I don't believe you'd receive the 7-day licence suspension.

Traffic offences outside Ontario that will add demerit points:

Speeding
Failure to obey a stop sign
Failure to obey a signal light
Failure to stop for a school bus
Racing
Failing to remain at or return to the scene of an collision
Careless driving

Criminal offences outside Ontario that will result in a suspension:

Vehicular manslaughter
Criminal negligence
Dangerous driving
Failure to remain at the scene of a collision
Impaired driving
Driving while disqualified or prohibited
