Example of Un-1 AKA Marc Stokes Performing:
Un-1 aka Marc Stokes, a Canadian Freestyle rapper from Vancouver BC, recently received this voicemail:
Granville Street is the loudest street in our city, it is Named the Entertainment District, and is the perfect venue for outdoor music in Vancouver. English bay during the day time, with quieter volumes is also a wonderful outdoor venue for music and street entertainment that is enjoyed by many.
Un-1, or Marc Stokes has the birthright, as do all Canadian Citizens to Gather peacefully and to express himself freely as stated in the charter of rights and freedoms:
"CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS
