I think that frequent train service is definitely viable between the two cities, but I don't think it will be run by VIA rail. I think that a private operator, backed by the government, with the ability to redevelop station areas will probably be the ticket. It'll basically be a real estate development company masquerading as a rail service (which is fine).
Possibly. There certainly is an argument that corridors (not just routes) that are entirely within a single province should be a provincial responsibility. It could be private or public.
