Pokemon Go takes over Jack Layton Ferry Terminal

Pokemon Go is finally out in Canada! But even before it hit our local app store, Toronto PokeMasters were out in full force all weekend trying to catch 'em all.

Many ventured towards the water because the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal has numerous Pokestops in a relatively small area. And, many of these stops had lure modules on, filling the lakeside space with lots and lots of Pokemon.

While it may look like everyone's absorbed in their phones, many are crediting the game with getting people active and outside. Some are exploring new parts of the city thanks to Pokemon and others are making new friends.

Regardless of what you think, the game is just lots of fun. And here's how some PokeMasters enjoyed the weekend by the lake.
