CBC News - Technology & Science - Tim Hortons to accept debit cards

This both came as a surprise to me (that BC was part of the "test market") and not (as somebody who's driven through a Maritimes Tim Hortons and had to park, get cash, and come inside to pay). I tend to take for granted that I can pay for everything everywhere with my debit card (even a $2 coffee), and I guess that's not always the case. I believe the delays to which Tim Hortons refers are not those related to the use of the debit cards, but those that occur when the debit machines go down and people are left with no way to pay for the items that are already being made.
