Promotional website copy: "Former judge Wallace Craig worked in the justice system for forty-six years, first as an independent lawyer in downtown Vancouver and then as a Judge in the criminal courts at 222 Main Street until retirement in 2001. In Craig’s words we seemed to have evolved to a time of “justice without law and order.” He is of the opinion that we must return to the grass roots values on which our laws were created. But he also believes that we must be innovative and alive to solutions that will enable the criminal justice system to be an effective deterrent to criminal activity. Craig is considered an authority and thought leader in the area of law and order in our time. Recently he was invited to participate in an exploration of law and order through an innovative audio program called "The Elegant Solution" hosted by long time broadcaster and change agent Allan Hunkin. In "Elegant Solutions In The Justice System" Judge Craig offers us some thoughts and solutions with only one purpose in mind and that is to make our communities more peaceful and safe."
