Wallace Craig – Author

Wallace Craig, Jayo graduate of 1949, has published a book, “Short Pants to Striped Trousers”, based on growing up in Fraserview and his 26 years as a judge at Main & Cordova.

Short Pants to Striped Trousers recounts, with warmth, humour and insight, his journey from the family shack on Clarendon Street to a downtown law practice and twenty-six years on the bench of the Vancouver criminal division of the provincial court.

Since 1975, from his vantage point in the middle of skid road, Craig has observed the downward spiral of an area beset by drug trafficking, addiction, lawlessness and murder. He says, “If the reality in Vancouver is that crime pays and is without punishment, and I believe it is, then the criminal justice system is truly a tattered scarecrow.” (less)
