A student from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, is demanding compensation from burger behemoth McDonald's, claiming that a dodgy Big Mac has prompted a lifetime's aversion to fastfood. Reginald S. F. Linegar claims that a Big Mac Meal he consumed in November 1998 made him violently ill and that he was treated in a Montreal hospital for dehydration, nausea and fever caused by "food poisoning, likely".
