Cayamant is a municipality in La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau Regional County Municipality, Canada. The village of Lac-Cayamant is located at the north end of west of Gracefield, it was known as the Township Municipality of Dorion, named after Antoine-Aimé Dorion. It was renamed to the Municipality of Cayamant at the end of 1988, due to many problems created by having the identical name to that of the city of Dorion; the new name refers to the largest lake in Lake Cayamant. The Algonquin term Kakgama, Kandikagamaw, or Kandikagama means "porcupine". Alternatively, it may come from Kantuagama; the village has a primary school, a church, some convenience stores and some basic commerce. Most of the population lives near the lake; the most populated street is "Rue Principale". Between 1890 and 1900, a few settlers moved to the shores of Cayamant Lake, becoming home to a flood of French Canadians who were heading to the west of the province in search of farmland. In 1902, the "Lake Cayamont" post office opened.
The Township Municipality of Dorion was formed on October 10, 1906. The first municipal council was elected on October 17, 1906. In 1918, the parish of Saint-Roch-du-Lac Cayamant was established.

Marie Aioe Dorion
"Madame" Marie Aioe Dorion Venier Toupin was the only female member of an overland expedition sent by Pacific Fur Company to the Pacific Northwest in 1810. Like her common-law first husband, Pierre Dorion Jr. she was Métis, with her mother from the Iowa tribe and a French Canadian father. She was known as Wihmunkewakan, "Walks Far Woman" and Marie Laguivoise, the latter recorded in 1841 at the Willamette Mission and a variation on Aiaouez rendered as Iowa. NOTE FROM THE IOWA TRIBE: The source for the name "Holy Rainbow" states the name refers to Pierre Dorion's FIRST wife, a Yankton Sioux woman, not Marie: "It is believed that Dorion had taken the young Iowa Indian woman for a wife about 1806, after abandoning a Yankton woman named Holy Rainbow." Marie was the second wife, not the first, the Yankton named "Holy Rainbow." Marie was Ioway, not Yankton, her name was not "Holy Rainbow." Wihmunkewakan is the Lakota translation of Holy Rainbow it seems, although if it is a name of a woman, it properly would have ended with -win.
We do not have documentation of what Marie's actual Ioway name was, but the Ioway language is as different from Lakota, as German is from English. It is unclear as to the evidence for stating she was a common-law wife or a Metis. Both seem to be assumptions of some kind. Marriages between French trappers and Indian women were recognized and formalized and made according to Indian law through bride price to the parents of the bride horses or goods, it is that Marie and Sacajawea knew one another. Peter Stark notes the similarities between the two women in his book Astoria: both women were based in the then-small settlement of St. Louis, they were both wives of interpreters in the burgeoning Missouri fur trade, her husband Pierre Dorion Jr. was hired by the Pacific Fur Company to join Wilson Price Hunt and a group on an overland expedition to the Pacific Fur Company.) Were their two young boys, who were two and four years old. She gave birth to another child near modern North Powder, who died several days later.
After reaching Fort Astoria and her family returned with a trapping party to the Snake River area. While at trading post in January 1814, Marie Dorion learned from a scout that her husband and a small trapping party were about to be attacked by a band of Bannocks After traveling three days only with her two infant children, she found the scene of the attack. Only one of the trappers, LeClarc, was alive, was moved away from the area on a horse. Despite the medical attention of Dorion, he died that evening. There were several horses left by the Bannock warriors and were promptly taken by Marie back to the small fur trading post. However, upon reaching the post she discovered the few staff had been scalped. Attempting to reach another safe fur trading station in the Pacific Northwest, one of Marie's two horses collapsed in the Blue Mountains. While waiting for spring weather, she supported her two infants for 50 days of winter weather. Marie created snare traps out of the horse manes to provide a supply of mice and squirrels for her family.
She additionally smoked the horseflesh, collected frozen berries and gathered the inner flesh of trees to avoid her family starving. Near the end of March, Marie was able to progress west reaching a Walla Walla village exhausted and short of food; the village leadership aided her in getting back to Fort George. Marie had three more children, her second husband was Louis Venier. With her third husband, Jean Toupin, she settled near Oregon, on the French Prairie, it was here that she began to be known as "Madame" or "Madame Iowa". One of two eldest sons, Jean Baptiste fought in the Cayuse War. After Dorion Venier Toupin died on September 5, 1850, she was buried inside the original log Catholic church in Saint Louis; when the church burned down in 1880 and the current church built, the location of Dorion's grave was forgotten and remains unknown to this day. It was only when the church register was translated from French into English many years after the original church burned down that it was learned that Dorion had been buried there.
There is no record of why she received this honor instead of being buried in the nearby cemetery, but church burial requires special dispensation and may have indicated that Dorion was devout. Among the places memorializing Dorion are Madame Dorion Memorial Park in the foothills of the Blue Mountains near Milton-Freewater and the Dorion Complex residence hall at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande. There is a plaque noting the place near North Powder where she gave birth. Hers is one of the 158 names of people important to Oregon's history that are painted in the House and Senate chambers of the Oregon State Capitol, her name is in the Senate chamber. St. Louis, has a street named after her, Dorion Lane. Madame Dorian Memorial park, located near Wallula Junction, Washington, is named in her honor. Oregon author Jane Kirkpatrick wrote the Tender Ties trilogy of historical novels based on Dorion's life; the individual titles in the series are A Name of Her Own, Every Fixed Star, Hold Tight the Thread.
On May 10, 2014, the Daughters of the American Revolution held a service at Saint Louis Catholic Church dedicating a historical marker in Dorion's honor. Chandler, J. C..

Vaudreuil–Hudson is a commuter railway line in Greater Montreal, Canada. It is operated by Exo, the umbrella organization that operates public transport services across this region; the Vaudreuil–Hudson line was established in 1887 as a Canadian Pacific Railway passenger service known as the CP Lakeshore West line. It was transferred to Société de transport de Montréal on October 1, 1982, it was refurbished between 1982 and 1990. On January 1, 1996, it was transferred to Exo's predecessor agency, the Agence Métropolitaine de transport. Exo assumed current operation of the line upon its establishment on June 1, 2017. There are 13 inbound and 14 outbound departures each weekday; this line links the Lucien-L'Allier station in downtown Montreal with Hudson to the west of the Island of Montreal. With the completion of the Intermodal station in Vaudreuil, most trains that used to terminate in Dorion, now terminate in Vaudreuil; the line offers frequent peak-hour service to or from Vaudreuil. Outside of rush hours and on weekends, service is every two to five hours.
There is only one weekday round trip from the Hudson terminus. This is the only line in Montreal to offer semi-express service; the trains are owned and managed by the Réseau de transport métropolitain, operated by Bombardier Transportation. Service on this line started in 1887. Service began with local stops between Montreal and Rigaud being added to trains running between Montreal and Ottawa. Over time, as the population of the western part of the Island of Montreal increased, Canadian Pacific established a dedicated commuter service with several stops on the Island of Montreal and off the western tip of the Island. Over the past 50 years, service patterns on the line have not changed all that much; the average number of weekday round trips has hovered around 12, with weekend and holiday service averaging 3 or 4 trips depending on whether the day is Saturday or Sunday. The commuter line was owned and operated by Canadian Pacific until October 1, 1982. On that date and ownership of the commuter trains was transferred to the publicly owned Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission.
The STCUM set fares and schedules, assumed ownership of the equipment that Canadian Pacific had used to operate the service. Canadian Pacific continued to provide the tracks, storage and train crews needed to keep the line running. For Montreal commuters, the transfer of ownership was positive because the trains were integrated into the bus and metro system. Over time, the commuter line was upgraded with the purchase of new renovated stations; the line was transferred to the newly formed Agence métropolitaine de transport on January 1, 1996. On July 1, 2010, service to Rigaud was discontinued, as the town of Rigaud was unable to justify a $300,000 annual fee double the previous annual fee of $160,000 required by the AMT to maintain train service for a handful of users; the line now ends at Hudson. At this time the line was renamed: "Dorion" was replaced by "Vaudreuil" in reference to the terminus for most runs, "Rigaud" was replaced by "Hudson" in reference to the terminus for the extended service.
On June 1st, 2017, the AMT was dissolved and replaced by two new governing bodies, the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain and the Réseau de transport métropolitain. The RTM took including this line. In May 2018, the RTM re-branded itself as Exo; the Vaudreuil–Hudson line became exo1, the red line colour was updated to a lighter pastel shade of red. The commuter line operates over the following Canadian Pacific Railway subdivisions: Westmount Subdivision (between Lucien L'Allier and Montreal West Vaudreuil Subdivision (between Montreal-West and Dorion M&O Subdivision (between Dorion and Rigaud Vaudreuil–Hudson schedule
Sir Antoine-Aimé Dorion, was a French Canadian politician and jurist. Dorion was born in Ste-Anne-de-la-Pérade into a family with liberal values, sympathetic to the Patriotes in 1837-1838, his father, merchant Pierre-Antoine Dorion, was a representative of the Patriote party in the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada from 1830 to 1838. After studies at the Nicolet seminary from 1830 to 1837, in his twenty-second year went to Montreal to read law with Côme-Séraphin Cherrier, an eminent lawyer for whom he retained a lasting friendship. On the 6th of January 1842 he was admitted to the bar of the province, became the partner of M. Cherrier, in the course of a few years attained the highest rank in his profession. Dorion descended from a Liberal family which from early days had supported the Reform party in Canada. In addition to his father, his maternal grandfather represented the county of Saint Maurice in the Legislative Assembly from 1819 to 1830. At the time that Dorion commenced the study of law, Canada was entering a struggle between Lower Canada and Upper Canada for a balance of representation.
Although a decisive political victory had been gained, a responsible government formed, by Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine and Robert Baldwin in 1848, they did not press for an immediate overthrow of existing institutions, in 1851, the administration was handed over to Francis Hincks and Augustin-Norbert Morin. The elections of 1854 had brought new reformist blood into the ranks of the Liberal party. Dorion was elected as member of the assembly for the province of Canada for the city of Montreal, was chosen as leader, it seemed that the coalition government under Allan MacNab had clarified the situation, but by 1856 Upper Canada had increased, it contributed a larger share to the revenue, demanded proportionate representation. Dorion understood the true principle of federation as applicable to Canada, but he did not pursue this idea, in fact his following was never sufficiently strong to enable him to give effect to the sound measures he was so capable of formulating. In 1858 Dorion served as Co-Premier of the Province of Canada with Clear Grit leader George Brown but the government fell within three days.
From 1863 to 1864 Dorion again served as Co-Premier, this time with John Sandfield Macdonald as well as taking the position of Attorney-General, but refused to participate in the Great Coalition government formed in 1864 by Brown, John A. Macdonald and George-Étienne Cartier. Following the Quebec Conference of 1864 he denounced the proposed Canadian Confederation and led the opposition in Lower Canada to the project, he was the leader of the Parti Rouge and thought the provinces would lose their power if Confederation was put into action. He disapproved that the colonies of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island were uniting under a central government. Dorion expressed his rejection of confederation through a manifesto in 1864, multiple articles from 1865 to 1867, his attendance of opposition meetings in Lower Canada; when Confederation became a reality, Dorion won a seat in the new House of Commons of Canada as Liberal Member of Parliament for Hochelaga. He was re-elected three times in succession for Napierville and served as Minister of Justice in the Liberal government of Alexander Mackenzie from 7 November 1873 and during the six months that he was in office passed the Electoral Law of 1874 and the Controverted Elections Act.
On 1 June 1874 he was named chief justice of the Court of Queen's Bench of Quebec. In 1878, Dorion was created a Knight Bachelor; the Township Municipality of Dorion in the Outaouais region of Quebec, was named in his honour. In 1848 Dorion married Iphigénie, the daughter of Dr. Jean Baptiste Trestler and Eulalie Delisle of Montreal.
