Simple answer - no business case for the line to exist.
There is no freight demand, which would mean passenger would have to pick up the full costs, which simply isn't a viable option.

My guess is they determined that building a new rail bridge for that wouldn't be worth it - there appears to be room in the vicinity of the E&N roundhouse for a new station, potentially.The VIA station was bigger than a bus shelter. It had an agent and, if my memory is correct, washrooms.
Just a guess.
