Mackenzie Hart speaks on CBC News about Right-Wing Extremism in Canada

Mackenzie Hart, an analyst at ISD, discusses the findings of our new report: An Online Environmental Scan of Right-Wing Extremism in Canada. The research finds that right-wing extremists in Canada are increasing online and being influenced by their counterparts in the United States.

A co-author of the report, Hart says Canadians should be concerned as the research also revealed evidence of instances of violence being motivated by rhetoric posted online.
