It seems easy to scold people. The city ranks first in the places in Quebec where residents use the most bad words.
As funny as it sounds, a recent survey found that
Gatineau is on the first step of the podium in Quebec and third across Canada in terms of the most number of coronations used.
This is according to a study by Preply, an organization dedicated to language learning.
They interviewed more than 1,500 Canadians spread across the country’s 44 largest cities.
According to the data collected, Gatineau is above the average, which is 9 daily swear words.
Gatineau residents use 13 profanities per day associated with Regina and Chatham-Kent.
Only one other city in Quebec made the list, Trois-Rivières, which ranked seventh.
Even the president of the Impératif français did not say he was surprised by these figures.
According to Jean-Paul Perrault, this comes from our proximity to Ontario. The mixture of two languages and two cultures, according to him, encourages the use of swear words, especially when they are used in contexts of great emotion.
