Ville de Gatineau strives to ensure that social media exchanges at all times remain harmonious. It encourages such exchanges, but expects a certain decorum:
Ville de Gatineau is not responsible for the comments and opinions of users.
Ville de Gatineau authorizes users to add hyperlinks as long as the content is related to the topics in question. It is understood that Ville de Gatineau is not responsible for the content of those external sites.
In the interest of keeping exchanges constructive and respectful, Ville de Gatineau monitors all of the comments created or shared on social media.
Under normal circumstances, Ville de Gatineau responds to comments posted on its Facebook page or Twitter feed. Social media are continuously monitored. Although there is an expectation of speedy and immediate response associated with the use of social media, there is sometimes a need to check with the different departments. Consequently, there may be delays from time to time, as required.
Gatineau is the fourth largest city in the province of Quebec with close to 285,000 inhabitants.
