      I guess they're talking about the city of Ontario, CA, not the province of Ontario, Canada.

      Wait, what? This coming from a province where they sand and kitty litter the roads. Everyone in Calgary has to replace their windshields each spring because of all the flying rocks. I'd take salt spray over that insanity any day. And this past winter there was no snow at all.

      In the video, the owner claims that it isn't the first time he's had a car on fire...

      It's either he has only owned Italian sports cars or he's a pyromaniac with an expensive habit.
