Near Brockville, ON. Oops.

Based on the overhead photos which show the golf course, I believe it happened here, just southwest of Brockville.

The entire Toronto-Ottawa and Toronto-Montreal schedule binned on a holiday weekend Friday, leaving just the Ottawa-Montreal service. VIA have thrown up their hands and cried "no buses to be had!" Time to get some NPCUs, VIA, or build a frigging wye near Brockville Junction.
