died of cancer new Significance in Canadian history Joseph Armand is a very significant Canadian because he was the man to invent the snowmobile. If he wasn't born with his amazing imagination and his passion for inventing all those people who the ambulance drove to the hospital with the B12 probably would have died and the doctors in remote places who came to people's houses to heal them would have been worse by the time they would have got there with a car and the doctor would probably need an ambulance because they would have got in an accident. Joseph armand changed the world just from his crazy imagination. 1955- Muskeg R3 tractor comes out for logging and farming because of loss of snow Accomplishments Work Cited http://www.museebombardier.com/en/content/jab/biographie.htm.
