"What else can you expect from a science(?) where bends can be straight, pales can be dark, and naked women are usually proper?"
(I don't remember who I'm stealing that from. As usual, I just ran across it somewhere on the internet.)
A report to council indicates the [currently used] emblem appears to be an evolution in design from the original municipal crest — a beaver (1871-1887) and the one used for the Town of Sault Ste. Marie — a view of the locks and railway bridge (1887-1912).
The research also shows that it appears the city solicitor was asked to apply for a copyright in 1916, but the emblem was never registered.
