Let's hope! Riding in the BC Car on the Maple Leaf( although technically it's a VIA Train and not BC as VIA defined it) between Niagara Falls,ON and Oakville( Toronto) is much better than switching to a Go Train or Bus @ the Border!No one knows the exact status of the Maple Leaf - especially under the current circumstances. Every indication is that GO (Government of Ontario) Transit will provide service on a schedule remarkably similar to that of the Maple Leaf between Niagara Falls and Toronto whenever things get back to normal. A call to VIA Rail will only reveal that VIA "does not provide service between Niagara Falls and Toronto". As the eternal optimist I would like to think that means that Amtrak will run non-stop in Canada.
