Yes, but it's untenable so it's a moot point. You might be able to eventually make some more north-south connections that aid with connections though. You've already got an east side connection between Smith Falls & Brockville, so you could do a similar one on the west or do a diagonal between Peterborough and Kingston (probably the best option).But in Europe there are different level of trains on the same route. Commuter, local, semi express and express.
VIA doesn't have that. You need to be able to take the local train that stops at all stops and transfer to a semi express or express train.
For example you need a local train making all stops which will take you from Port Hope and take you to Belleville or Kingston where you transfer to the express train to go to Ottawa or Montreal. Or take the GO from Eglinton to Oshawa and then transfer to the express train to Kingston where you can catch a local to Napanee. You could even have smaller stops like Brighton whici would be a good spot for a commuter train to take passengers to Belleville or Cobourg.
