George Dryden 'Diefenbaby' Claim To Be Tested At Saskatoon Museum

CP
SASKATOON - DNA is being collected at a Saskatoon museum to determine whether a Toronto man is the son of John Diefenbaker.

George Dryden claims his mother had an affair with the former prime minister in the 1960s.

Dryden, who bears a strong resemblance to the leader, found out in June that the man he believed was his dad was not his biological father.

The Diefenbaker Canada Centre agreed to let a testing company from Thunder Bay, Ont., collect some DNA from items in its archives.

Dr. Amarjit (AHM'-ahr-jit) Chahal (SHAH'-hahl) of Warnex PRO-DNA Services says the samples will be tested within 10 working days.

But he cautions there may not be enough material to work with. (CKOM)
