Traffic is backed up in both directions on the QE2 and into Calgary along Deerfoot Trail.

The cause seems to be shoppers trying to get into save some cash with boxing day deals at Crossiron Mall. 

The turn onto Deerfoot Trail from Stoney Trail is at a standstill in both directions. The exit ramps into Crossiron Mills are blocked due to excess traffic, which is also slowing down traffic along the QE2 in the area.
