I don't think Tim's counts, as you're not really supposed to get tips there. But if you are a waiter or a bartender, you get less. I grew up in NB, and it is the same there. Sucks. That's why waiters are unhappy when people don't tip. They make less than minimum wage, AND they get taxed on their tips. So if someone doesn't tip, the server is essentially paying the gov't to be serving them. Bah.
