The party is using the incident as the basis for its latest fundraising appeal to donors on email, with the subject line "They want to cut off his head."

The May Day protest last Wednesday on the front lawn of the Legislature involved several hundred demonstrators, including unidentified people with Soviet-era flags with a two-metre high mock guillotine made of wood, complete with faux bloodstains.

"Protestors showed up last week at Queen's Park waving communist flags," Community and Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod said in a one-page letter asking supporters to donate at least $1.
