Program note:

Be it the B-line or the highway, being stuck in traffic is a ubiquitous complication for folks all over the metro Vancouver area. Just recently, in March 2015, the Globe and Mail reported that Vancouver’s traffic congestion was the worst in the country and the 20th worst in the world. Of course, Willie Nelson once said: “Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway; we’re the best of friends, and we keep insisting that the world turn our way; and our way is on the road again.”
