Greed.. the key word here...

No surprise here.... with either the small award or the fact that he's still whining... obviously this guy doesn't get it and he probably should have got his first clue when his original lawyer David W Hooley, QC passed the file back to one of the juniors. What I can't figure out was where was his legal advice when they offered him $59,000.00 and he turned them down... obviously greed paid a big part in his decision to pass up a gift horse in the mouth...
Ex-government worker gets $8,000 for political discrimination

A P.E.I. government worker who was not rehired for summer work following an election in 1996 has been awarded $8,000 for political discrimination.
John MacTavish, a Liberal supporter, worked as asphalt raker for 10 weeks a year from 1988 to 1996 for the P.E.I. government. When the Progressive Conservative party took over the government after the 1996 election, MacTavish was among 800 casual workers not rehired.
Virtually all of those workers settled out of court, but MacTavish hung on to fight against a government plan to put a cap on individual payouts in political discrimination cases.
Both sides previously agreed that this ruling by the P.E.I. Supreme Court would be binding with no right of appeal.
