Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod said she is "standing by" a recent Progressive Conservative party fundraising email that suggested anti-Ford protesters want to "cut off" the Premier's head.

The e-mail, sent to supporters on Tuesday, described a recent demonstration outside Queen's Park in which a guillotine was unveiled and protesters carried signs reading "may history repeat itself, chop chop!"

While Premier Doug Ford condemned the protest last week, the party quickly turned the act into a fundraising plea asking supporters to donate as little as $1.
