SASKATOON – A Toronto man who believes John Diefenbaker may have been his father thinks there’s no point testing a recently discovered lock of the former prime minister’s hair.
The Diefenbaker Canada Centre announced last week that during renovations it found hair labelled as belonging to Canada’s 13th prime minister.
But George Dryden says the hair is useless for DNA testing because it was cut and has no roots attached.
The museum has invited Dryden to have it tested, but he says it’s a waste of time.
Dryden earlier hired a company to conduct DNA tests on a few artifacts at the centre, but the results were inconclusive.
Dryden, who bears a strong resemblance to the former Conservative leader, claims his mother had an affair with the prime minister in the 1960s.
