Hamilton councillor calls for removal of Ontario judge who wore ‘Make America Great Again’ hat in court

A city councillor in Hamilton says a judge who reportedly wore a hat showing support for Donald Trump in the courtroom should step down or be removed from the bench.

Coun. Matthew Green spoke out on social media Friday following a report in The Globe and Mail that Judge Bernd Zabel — who works in a Hamilton courthouse — wore a hat that read “Make America Great Again,” a campaign slogan used by the U.S. president-elect.
