Gender and diversity professor Jennifer Berdahl, policy director of the BC Civil Liberties Association Micheal Vonn and political science professor Chris Erickson will be answering questions on the theme of "free speech" from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tonight to be livestreamed here. The event is part of the Pint and Policy Series — described as "a brand new series where students, academics and policy makers get together and talk politics."

The questions will be taken from a Reddit thread posted yesterday, which is still open for commenting. The thread's body mentions controversies surrounding American universities' "safe spaces" and ponders how far we should go to protect free speech. Here are some of the highest-rated comments in the thread so far:
