You are required to have winter tires from 1st of November to 31st of March... IF the weather demands it.


I put mine on long before 1st of November.
Believe it or not, only Quebec requires true winter tires (three peak snowflake rated).

None of the other provinces require them, but here in BC the law does state you need to run at least an all-season tire on mountain passes, which most people would run on their cars anyhow...

Chains are permitted here, but usually only commercial trucks use them. Cars generally don't even have enough clearance for chains, and bad things would probably happen if you tried to run them!
Thats pretty odd considering Canada is kinda like Finland.


I can imagine the chain breaking and acting like a metal whip. :teehe:

I have seen chains come off before, but they just thrash around in wheel whales, and fling into the road.
I would assume they could hurt someone if they where near the road, and it hit them.

I have Michelin All terrain on my Rav 4 all year long, not so good on ice though even when I'm in 4x4 mode.
Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advise, and a good conversation.

Hello peoples, I hope Saturday has been good for you.
I'm still waiting for it to be one here, feeling pretty rough, and tired.
My dinner was a bust, i don't like carbonized chicken, and crunchy black rolls. :blush:

Here you can run 'em from Oct. 1 to Apr. 30.

I believe it's a $121 fine if you run 'em outside that period, but to be honest it doesn't seem to be heavily enforced, as the odd person will run 'em year round. Most are smart enough not to run 'em outside of winter though, as to not wear 'em out...
I've only used them on rare occasions. They help in severe situations but I can't image anyone driving with them all year.

Canada is fairly relaxed when it comes to vehicle regulations. For instance, there's no inspection requirements or emissions testing for passenger vehicles here where I live. I'm sure low population numbers compared to land mass plays a part in that.

And yes! Chains breaking or improperly installed will destroy your wheel well!

Ya, life sentence with no parole is a bit harsh. That wouldn't happen here in this country. But you have to understand that Americans worship their Negroes.

And what the American media doesn't mention, is their beloved 'jogger' was a convicted felon. He was a thug and a thief.

They do have a citizens arrest law in Georgia...

But you have to witness the perp commit a crime before you can legally "citizens arrest" him.

They shouldn't have went after him armed. It's one thing to defend your home from intruders with a firearm, but chasing someone down the road with firearm in hand is a recipe for trouble, as happened here.

Thanks for the reminder I need gas, got appointments, and a few other things this week.
Everything is going up now, gas, food, and anything you need to live on, and it will get worse.

Oh my pay went up, but as always what I gained was took back for healthcare.
Every time we get a cost of living increase they just take it so it does us not a bit of good.

Better hope your pipes don't freeze! Might want to turn off the water if you can. Don't you Finns have wood burning stoves as a backup?
