"Jack" Cornett was the final reeve of South Vancouver before it was absorbed into Vancouver in 1929. His mayoral campaign included a patriotic theme at a time when Canada was involved with World War II.[1]

Cornett was elected to the British Columbia Legislative Assembly as a British Columbia Conservative Party MLAs for South Vancouver in 1928 and served a term.
