While you can still expect to see crowds of people queuing for a ferry to the Toronto Islands at Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, expect to see a lot less people loitering on the hill and staring at their phone.
Following a intervention by Toronto Mayor, John Tory the developers of the hugely popular Pokemon GO game have agreed to reduce the number of Pokestops at the terminal by more than half.
There are now only four Pokestops at the Queens Quay location where there once was nine.
Concerns had been raised in recent weeks about the crowds gathering at the ferry terminal to play the game, attracted by the Pokestops which are in-game beacons where players can congregate in real life.
The city had approached the games developer Niantic and asked them to remove some of the stops in an effort to address the crowding.
However no action was immediately taken, so Mayor John Tory stepped in and took matters into his own hands.
Tory personally contacted the developer on Friday and by Monday the agreement to cut the number of stops was in place.
His plan seems to have worked, with far less players congregating in the area on Wednesday, once word had reached players that their chances of catching ’em all at Jack Layton Ferry Terminal had been significantly reduced.
