Excellent comment. I'll try to incorporate this information into one of the future articles (Part 3 possibly) since Part 3 covers far-future stuff like these.

Personally, I think the first real-life Hamilton commuter rail network will possibly begin with West Harbour GO + Gage GO + Stoney Creek GO. Although Gage GO possibly is not even studied (yet) by Metrolinx, Hamilton owns land there now, and it'd allow access to the stadium and Gage Park megaevents (like World Music Festival), and possible business revitalizations over the next two decades in the gritty areas surrounding Gage GO. And consider LRT connections could cause a transit loop to emerge (GO line, A line, B line, all creating a loop); transit loops are often an extremely powerful coming-of-age moments for a nascent rail transit network. This type of thing is "for our kids" kind of thing, but all of our now-funded projects actually already gets 80% of this transit loop ready.
