Political parties often send one or two MPs to the conventions of their opponents.
The Conservative Party's representative at the Liberal leadership announcement on Sunday, was none other than Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore. And he wasn't shy to voice his opinion about what transpired.

He didn't run on any policy, he ran on his celebrity status because he is the son of Pierre Trudeau.
