Coun. Terry McFadyen calls it a conversation piece.
On Monday, as the City of Cleveland braced for the start of the 2016 Republican National Convention, McFadyen showed up to a meeting of Dawson Creek city council wearing a Donald Trump ball cap.
"My son lives in New York," McFadyen said. "He came for a visit and he brought it up as a gift."
The Trump 2016 cap features a profile of the bombastic candidate, his hair flowing into the colours of the American flag. On the side, the slogan "Make America Great Again."
So does the councillor supports the controversy-prone presumptive Republican nominee?
"I have no comment," he said when asked about the cap. "It's a conversation piece."
Several councillors said the laconic McFadyen did not in fact support the brash businessman.
Coun. Charlie Parslow went further, revealing that he, too, was wearing a piece of Trump-brand apparel.
"In defence of Councillor McFadyen, I have a Donald Trump belt on," said Parslow.
