Because of the layout of the rails, VIA and GO will likely never exclusively use Hunter as a hub. However Hunter is still the best location for LRT, greyhound, GO buses, some trains and in my opinion, HSR buses as well. I think the best option is to group all of the services we can into and around hunter, and operate a fast, frequent, free shuttle to the James North location - perhaps in a dedicated lane on hughson with a quick stop at gore park?

Regarding the influx of workers - the direct effect of their presence on local businesses is great. But I want to stress that the most important aspect is the shift in mindset of city workers if they become a part of city life on a daily basis. It's not just about where they spend their lunch money. Its about how they view the city - and especially the heart of the city - once they become a part of it every day.
