The Algoma Steel Star Shines Bright Tonight


In honour of the season, Algoma Steel Inc. is pleased to announce they have partnered with Steel Speed Crane Rentals Inc. to erect the Christmas Star.

Crafted back in the 1980s by members of Algoma’s Central Trades group, the Algoma
Steel star has bestowed goodwill and best wishes to the residents of Sault Ste. Marie for
decades. Measuring 29 feet across, the steel-framed star is wired with lights and will be
hoisted high in the sky today.

In 2018 after a several year hiatus, Algoma Steel resurrected the star tradition after
emerging from CCAA as a new entity. This year Algoma Steel has partnered with local
supplier, Steel Speed Crane Rentals, who have provided their 165 ton crane with its 197
foot boom to hoist the star.

Look for the star in the sky this evening. The Algoma Steel Star will shine brightly over Sault
Ste. Marie for the rest of 2019. On behalf of everyone at Algoma Steel and Steel Speed
Crane Rentals, season’s greetings and best wishes for 2020!


  1. Why so happy about something that reminds you of how they screwed over the city and everyone in it out of more than a billion dollars? They won’t even say who the new owners are because it’s highly likely that the crooked Ruia brothers are still involved.
