I don’t even really know how to begin this post. Last week Jim Deva died.

Jim was co-owner of Little Sister’s Book & Art Emporium, an LGBTQ

bookstore here in Vancouver. But Jim was more than that. He was the

guy who fought Canada Customs all the way to the Supreme Court. Twice.

On top of that, he was incredibly kind, and beloved in his community.

I’ve only been selling to Little Sister’s for two years, but in that time I’d

come to know him a little, and hugely enjoyed our sales appointments.

His death has left a hole for many people, and I wish his loved ones all

the best at this difficult time. To find out more about the incredible

history of Little Sister’s, check out their Wikipedia page.
