Liberal biennial policy convention starts off with a bang, ends with a bit of a whimper

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau. For the first time in recent memory of leader wrap-ups for high-profile national conventions, Mr. Trudeau did not hold a news conference to review the event with the media, either for its positive developments in terms of party fortunes or its potentially negative highlights.
