Shown here is the view of the Alexandra Bridge from the Parliament Buildings. On the opposite side of the river is Hull (now part of Gatineau), and in the distance are the Gatineau Hills. French is the dominant language in Hull, as in most other parts of Quebec, though English is widely spoken at tourist attractions and federal government buildings. Many people in Hull are bilingual, but visitors shouldn't assume everyone is, and should be aware that language is sometimes a sensitive issue. An effort to speak French is usually appreciated.
