EDITOR'S NOTE- New column debuts today

Joining the Fearless Consumer as part of the Hook's commitment to public service journalism, The Squeaky Wheel debuts in this issue.

Inspired by The Fixer, a service of the Toronto Star, the Squeaky Wheel was envisioned by its founding reporter Peter Kleeman as an outgrowth of his interest in civic issues.

Once described as "a sort of Don Quixote" for his advocacy of a smaller Blenheim Road (when a developer began a freelance widening effort), Kleeman is a Harvard-educated transportation consultant.

He will be grateful for your feedback and suggestions for future topics.
