Where do you dream of going when the weather is like this? Florida, Mexico, the Dominican Republic -- somewhere hot and sunny, right? But while you're packing your swimsuit and loading up on sunscreen, others are packing their parkas and loading up on Blistex -- and coming here -- to Ontario. Who are these hearty souls and what are they coming for? We'll get a rundown of all the possibilities from our tourism experts. Ellen Flowers is the media relations manager with Tourism Toronto. And Helen Lovekin is media relations coordinator for North America with Ontario Tourism. If you're going to enjoy some winter fun in Ontario, chances are you'll have to take a drive. But in the past three days, southern Ontario has been hit with over thirty centimeters of the white stuff. And though Toronto didn't call in the army for relief this time, the police were kept busy, with over seven hundred traffic accidents on highways in and around the GTA. So how do we cope with winter roads? No one knows better than the OPP's traffic expert, Sergeant Cam Woolley. This show contains one Studio 2 segment 'Dogsledding'.
