Annoying as a visitor paying those crazy taxes but I suppose if I lived there and got free healthcare I would be more amenable.Looked it up and looked confusing. My conclusion it is 5% in the western provinces and 13-15% in the eastern provinces.I think all of Canada just has a 5% tax on restaurant billsMaybe it depends on the province but isn't tax rather substantial in Canada?talked to a friend back home (canada) about how excited I was to come home to watch some SNF and head out for wings and some beer... we got to talking about how he doesnt do it much, if at all any more, as 12 wings alone are pushing 16$.. the scooner of beer (albeit large) now around 10... prices were ALWAYS higher than in the USA, but WT actual F?
$26 for 12 wings and a beer... + tax + tip, we're sitting at 35$ miniumum.
wife and I go for a 3 course michelin level lunch / dinner near by... 3 courses w a bunch of amuse-bouches inbetween for 22/28 euro pp for the regular 3 course meal... and up from there to about 50pp TAX AND TIP INC.
we're truly spoiled here... i cant wait to go home for some classic ramen, pho, wings etc...but im gonna vomit at the cost
the health care is immense... but the sweetest effect of taxation .. no tolls at all on our roads/highways.
“Our”? You’re already French?
