Hull or Gatineau, selon ce que vous préférez, is the gravy-filled hat of Ottawa where many underaged YOLO enthusiasts leave their suburban nests to experience some taboo territory. Aside from the stereotypically rampant Pepsi cans, empty poutine containers, and Belmont cigarette butts, you'll also find a town of welcoming and friendly Quebecers who are quite used to the ‘je ne parle pas Français’ types. French Canadians know how to party and you can tell by constant stream of events reeling Ottawans further across the bridge. Hull is something to experience when you are 17, and then laugh at when you’re 27, but you won’t know unless you come by.

In fact, I wrote a poem about it:

be sure to pack your toque

or be covered in puke

girls dance under nineteen

and scarf sketchy poutine

smoking 100 darts

and breaking 100 hearts

the strip is never dull

so i’ll see you in hull

Oh, also, everything you else you need to know about Hull is right here:
