Updated March 24 at 9:00 pm: Metrolinx has published the materials from the Open House. Of particular interest is the presentation which shows the proposed changes to the area around Bloor GO Station and Dundas West TTC Station.
In the first phase, the north sidewalk of Bloor Street would be redesigned to widen and otherwise beautify the access to the GO level from the sidewalk in the underpass. Also, a connection from Dundas West Station would be added at the east end of the platform. (Page 33 of the presentation shows details of the subway to GO link.)
In later phases, the streetcar loop at Dundas West would be redesigned so that all access was from Edna Avenue with traffic signals. This could be a mixed blessing given the level of transit service at this location.

Metrolinx has announced an open house for the Dundas West-Bloor Mobility Hub Study.
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Time: 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Venue: Lithuanian House
1573 Bloor Street West
Further background can be found in The Star.
Dundas West Station was built before GO existed, much less had service on the Weston corridor, but a connection could be built from the east end of the platform to what is now Bloor Station on the rail line. However, a major development, the Crossways, was not on top of the subway when it opened in 1966, and any connection must deal with this building.
