Doug Ford's Twitter account retweeted criticism of federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer on Monday, but the premier's office later said a staffer did so in error.

Screengrabs of Ford's @fordnation profile taken by Global News show the retweeted messages were originally from an account called @ScheerMustGo. The group's website says it is made up of Conservative Party members and supporters who are disappointed with Scheer's leadership after last week's election results.

One of the tweets highlights how the Conservatives' vote share in Oakville dropped from four years ago while another notes that a former press secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper opposes Scheer's refusal to march in pride parades.
