We are Canadian and we are great tippers. I have actually met very few fellow Candians that were not good tippers so I don't understand the above post by JeanS. Where in Canada were you that people complained about your tipping? We live near Vancouver - which is, as most of you know, very tourist oriented. We would never think of not tipping in any situation - except where service was terrible - and that, so far, has never happened to us.
CA Cruiser - tip away - most restaurants pay LESS than minimum wage up here - so the wait staff and others in the industry truly do need those tips - and most work very hard for them.
