A lock of hair discovered at the Diefenbaker Centre in Saskatoon could prove whether or not George Dryden is the former Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker's, illegitimate son.

"As far as I know there are no roots attached and as far as I know you need a root to do a DNA test," he said.
The 43 year old legal consultant has been on a quest for more than a year to prove that he is the only biological child of the late John Diefenbaker.
But the relationship with the centre in Saskatoon has been strained.
