I had to laugh at a headline in a recent Globe and Mail article about Canadians traveling in Canada:

My American bargain: Tour Canada like a penny-pinching U.S. visitor

Adam Bisby's feature has some good tips, including how to look like an American, along with other inside info on how to get good deals.

As far as being penny pinchers, Canadians have the same reputation down here. 
Mostly, they're known as poor tippers.

We're even!
