The article informs that Quebec's new winter tire law went into effect on December 15, 2008. The Quebec law mandates that between December 15-March 15 each year, four winter tires be mounted on all vehicles registered in the province. Early in 2008, there were concerns the Quebec law would create spot shortages in winter tire supplies, not only in Quebec but throughout North America.
