Justice Bernd Zabel, a Judge in Hamilton, Ontario, was suspended for 30 days because he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat into his court room. Zabel claims that he wore the hat to lighten the mood in the court.  The Ontario Judicial Council cited that “His [Zabel] conduct on Nov. 9, 2016 was completely at odds with the exemplary judge he has been for the past 27 years. We are satisfied that Justice Zabel does not hold any of the discriminatory views that the complainants attribute to Donald Trump."

UPDATE:  Zabel will continue to serve; National Post also has a follow-up HERE.
