McGuinty says people in south and southwestern Ontario have told him "not to dare" force their families to buy snow tires when they don’t feel it’s necessary.

He says with so much of Ontario’s population in the south, it doesn’t make economic sense to mandate snow tires.

The premier joked that the media would start writing about his nanny state government if Ontario made snow tires mandatory.

However, he says people should use good judgment and take care when driving in snowy conditions. (Tire Review/Akron)
