My guess is he's looking at the odd corridor trains that only run 4 days of the week - 2 in each direction Toronto to/from Ottawa and Montreal respectively. At least one had been daily in the earlier timetable but dropped in frequency when a third was added to the route in this latest version. I interpreted the change as a sign leisure travel on and around weekends was returning faster than business use.
These four trains will be daily as of June 22, which will bring the entire Corridor back to the same schedule on every day of the week:

"The following 4 trains: 66, 69, 643, 40 will resume daily service (7 days per week) starting on June 22, 2021."

I consider all resumptions as good news. Thanks for the update!
