After all, GO requires less start-up capital to expand services than LRT; it would immediately create a truer connection between Hamilton and Toronto; and it would impact vehicular traffic on the major roadways to the betterment

With all due respect, Daniel, on what is this assertion based? We already have a true link to Toronto in the #16 GO Express Bus from Hamilton to Toronto--I use it quite often and it is reliable and quick . I suspect that if all-day-GO succeeds in bringing hourly trains to James St. N., this bus service will be scaled back or cancelled. Since it operates with much greater frequency than the trains do, and is much faster than trains outside of peak hours (~45mins), I'm curious as to how you see this affecting traffic on the QEW.

In fact, I wonder about the possibilities that service to and from Toronto will actually be worse with the addition of all-day GO train service.
