Are Canadians cheap or just used to tipping less than Americans?
Canadians may be known for being polite and nice, but apparently we're also developing a reputation for being bad tippers - at least Quebecers are.
Burlington, Vermont isn't far from the Quebec border and staff at restaurants say people from La Belle Province are developing a bad distinction.
"When you're busting your butt and it's a large table or even a small table of Canadians, you just don't want to leave it to chance that you're going to get a $3 tip on a $100 bill, said Niall McMahan, a server at one restaurant. He said about three quarters of Canadian tourists tip five to 10 per cent so sometimes servers add the gratuity on to the bill.
People at other Burlington restaurants had similar feelings about Quebecers.
