I think these could be the electric locomotives.
I mean I don't see why GO would get new diesel locomotives when electrification has not even started.

It is most likely dual-mode locomotives. GO will need plenty of diesel locomotives before and after electrification to deal with the parts of the network they can't electrify. Dual-mode will allow electric running on the central electrified portion but allow the flexibility to use the locomotives to supplement the additional fleet with more frequent service beyond the electrified areas
