Agency: energi PR Timeframe: January - March 2010 With Vancouver set to host the two-week-long 2010 Olympic Winter Games and invite the masses for a fortnight of competitions and medal celebrations, traffic and crowd control issues emerged for residents and travelers alike. Since many of the Games’ events were being held at Whistler, 85 miles from Vancouver, long lineups and intense traffic along the Sea-to-Sky Highway seemed unavoidable. For the estimated one-third of Canadians who suffer from overactive bladder (OAB)—a chronic medical condition that causes the constant urge to urinate, even when the bladder is not full—a traffic-laden 85-mile journey might nix any plans of attending an Olympic event.
