Abstract: On a typical day, in a typical town, in a city almost anywhere in North America, roads and highways are filled with people going about their everyday business — commuting to work, delivering goods and materials, refuelling at gas stations, or just passing through. This transportation network is the backbone of communities and the essential link that ties the entire continent together. While its continuous availability is taken for granted by those living south of the 60th parallel, this isn’t always the case for those in Canada’s North.
