Diefenbaker DNA

December 8, 2011 by staff 

Diefenbaker DNA, DNA sampling is underway in Saskatoon that may rewrite the personal history of the only Prime Minister from Saskatchewan, John Diefenbaker.

Personal objects that once belonged to Diefenbaker are being examined to check the claim of a man who says the former prime minister may be his father.

John George Dryden, 42, says his mother knew Diefenbaker. DNA testing earlier this year showed the man Dryden believed to be his biological father is not.

Now, scientists are examining some hairbrushes and old hats stored at the John Diefenbaker Centre, to see if the items will produce viable DNA samples that can be tested.

It took several months of negotiations before the artifacts were made available.

If the samples can be tested, the results were not expected until some time in 2012.

    Why would any one in their right mind want to be connected to deifenbaker? Deif destroyed Canadas aero space technology (Avro Aero) he destoyed Our shipping industry. Taking Canada fron 3rd in the world to nothing ,by inviting the Mccarthiest Hal Banks to supposedly root out ‘commininsts’) from our docks.. Deif insitituted a policy of luring Natives to the north, and then had their dogs shot and their hunting gear taken away, the legacy of which is still felt today. Deif also brought Shock treatments , pre frontal lobotomies, starvation, and beatings to our prison system that eneded up causing riots accross the country endidng up in the biggest prison riot in Canadina History )Kingston)
