The federal government is unprepared for tackling far-right extremism and needs to re-think its approach, says a local think tank.

Candyce Kelshall, president of the Vancouver branch of the Canadian Association for Security and Intelligence Studies, says traditional counter-terrorism measures aren't equipped to tackle right-wing groups, which she describes as trans-national and decentralized.

"It is possible that law enforcement is looking at these groups as entities which have a hard structure which is linear and hierarchical" said Kelshall. "But in fact, that is not the case."
