I assume they're hedging their bets. CN and CP own the two respective tracks, so building the JN GO station seems like it was really about creating a bidding war between them for which station will serve the bulk of Hamilton traffic. The JN GO is Ontario's preferred option I think because that can continue service East, but it sounds like they'll take what they can get.

That said, there was a recent scandal in the news about how much the Ontario gov't overpays CN for track work, so I imagine there's pressure to find savings in their dealings with these guys.
