Toronto cuts down on PokeStops at Ferry Terminal

The Jack Layton Ferry Terminal is no longer the best place to play Pokemon Go in Toronto. That's because Mayor John Tory contacted PoGo developer Niantic and worked with the company to reduce the number of lakeside PokeStops - instead of nine, there are now four, as the Toronto Star reports.

Earlier this month, city staff came up with a plan to manage the Pokemon Go-playing crowds at the JLFT by putting up fencing and signage. However, it looks like the mayor took it one step further by actually changing the mobile augmented reality game.

Naturally, some PokeTrainers weren't too pleased with this development.



And along with the city, the Ed Mirvish Theatre is also trying to curb gameplay. It's asked audience members refrain from playing PoGo during performances of Matilda.
