I say this with no authority whatsoever, but my impression of the setup was that Hunter would continue to provide peak-hour service to Toronto, as it stands, but because of the Hunter St. tunnel, the line can't handle all-day service.

James N., however, has been bandied about as a possible station for all-day train service, though I'm sort of sceptical about the need for such service with buses being faster in off-peak times.

Regardless, James N. would be the gateway to stations further east stations in the Niagara peninsula. Niagara-bound service can't/won't make use of Hunter.

I highly doubt the two stations in 1km proximity to one another will confuse or deter any existing riders from getting on the GO. If anything, James N. service running a few minutes faster than that from Hunter will attract some new riders and open up the North End to colonization by Torontoians fleeing insane home prices.
