Canadian judge who wore 'MAGA' hat in court suspended

Source: Independent

The judge had worn the hat to 'add a bit of humour' to the court proceedings

A Canadian judge who wore a ďMake America Great AgainĒ hat in court has been suspended for 30 days.

Judge Bernd Zabel had shown up to work the day after the USís 2016 election donning the hat advertising Donald Trumpís campaign slogan.

After the Globe and Mail published a story about Mr Zabel's MAGA attire, the Ontario Judicial Council received a flood of complaints from people expressing concerns that they would not be treated impartially in Mr Zabelís courtroom, according to Buzzfeed News.

Appearing before the councilís disciplinary panel last month, Mr Zabel said he regretted wearing the hat.

5. So glad to have gotten to see that CBC version. What a shame CBS/AP didn't care to print this info.

It does reveal a totally different motivation for the judge's stunt.

Thanks for sharing the link, Saviolo.

3. I can kind of see where this would be cynically funny to a Canadian

Sadly we're the brunt of many jokes right now.
