"I would argue that you can have your good regional rail access by putting a station (even a one-sided / no bridges required mini station like GO-Bloor) on the rail line as it passes by IWS about 400m north of the stadium."

Better still, continue with GO into the DOWNTOWN Hunter Street Station and just continue on CP right-of-way through the city, have a gameday/Pan-Am stop just east of Ivor Wynne and join up with CN to Niagara just west of Ottawa Street.

We spent millions refurbishing an art-deco landmark right in the heart of downtown, where all the interurban buses arrive and depart, specifically for GO. It's folly to abandon it leaving buses in one place and trains in another.

From a "city-building" perspective (and wasn't that what this was all about in the first place?) GO downtown on Hunter Street is infinitely preferable to any other location.
