No offense to OP, or maybe a lot of offense, but if you can't manage this car in what amounts to a weak Toronto winter then what the hell are you doing wrong?
I never bothered getting winter shoes for my car, in Edmonton, and I had a blast. No issues, never got stuck, no shenanigans on slippery intersections.
Proper driving habits and techniques matter just as much if not more than winter tires.
