During the 80s and 90s, one of the oldest Canadian LGBT bookstores was filled with huge empty shelves. The Little Sister’s Book and Art Emporium in Vancouver knew that their books and other goods were being targeted at the Customs Borders. This sparked a 10-year-long court battle, starting in 1990 and ending with a Supreme Court decision in 2000, which ruled that the searchings were justified but the targeting of gay material was not. (x)
