I have lived in Saskatchewan, Canada for all my 42 years and can honestly say that front-wheel drive cars "can" be better in some instances. That being said we have driven only rear drive cars and trucks for as long as I have been driving. The tires make all the difference in the world for winter driving.

Braking and basic (not on the gas) handling does not care if its front drive or rear drive. You can not accelerate as fast with RWD in the really slippery roads, but neither should you be. FWD has trained a lot of drivers in poor driving habits.

Modern vehicles with all the safeties built in, anti-lock brakes, traction control and electronic stability control has made driving in the winter almost to easy. Its to easy to over-drive the road conditions and get into trouble.
