 Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online
When Cartier erected a cross there 24 July 1534, their chief, Donnacona, felt that he had been wronged; he harangued the French; his canoe was seized and he was forced to go aboard the ship along with those who were accompanying him.
Indeed, Cartier obtained from Donnacona, who claimed to have travelled a great deal, much information about the country and also about the fabulous kingdom of the Saguenay which could be reached by the river which bears that name today and where “there are immense quantities of gold, rubies and other rich things, and.
Donnacona accepted questioning, even before a notary, about what he had seen on his voyages; the monk and historian André Thevet, who specialized in interrogating travellers, claimed that he had had a long conversation with Donnacona.

 PaperAge Magazine News - Donnacona Mill Upgrade
A $275-million project announced in June 1998 to install a new paper machine was successfully completed, along with a second $12.5-million investment approved in May 2000 to increase the mill's bleaching capacity.
The changes to Donnacona, which were made necessary essentially by the permanent shutdown of two outdated paper machines at the mill, will increase its annual production capacity by close to 62,000 metric tons and should lead to some $65 million in additional sales.
With the new machines at Dolbeau and Donnacona, Alliance is now the third largest producer of supercalendered papers in North America, with an annual capacity of 286,000 metric tons.

 Jacques Cartier's Second Voyage - 1535 - Stadacona & Hochelaga   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
In May of 1535, Cartier set sail from France with 3 ships, 110 men, Chief Donnacona's 2 sons Dom Agaya and Taignoagny (who Cartier had kidnapped the previous year), and instructions to find the Iroquoian villages of Stadacona and Hochelaga.
He was met by Chief Donnacona, who was relieved to see his sons, but the gifts from the French King were not enough to erase the reservations he felt following his sons' kidnappings.
It appeared as though Donnacona were discouraging any westward travel and was told that his sons would not be allowed to go unless Cartier left hostages.
