There's a new Fixer in town, aiming to resolve complaints and identify bigger problems in need of citywide solutions.
Fiona Crean is settling into her job as Toronto's first ombudsman, with marching orders to adjudicate between citizens dissatisfied with city services – or lack of same – and the bureaucrats in charge.
