SURREY — A former Conservative cabinet minister has been tasked with trying to hold onto a Lower Mainland seat for the Tories in an upcoming federal byelection.

Former national revenue minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay has won the Conservative nomination ahead of next month's vote in the federal riding of South Surrey-White Rock.

The seat is open after former Surrey mayor Dianne Watts resigned to run for leadership of the provincial Liberal party.

The federal Liberals have tapped former White Rock mayor Gordon Hogg as their candidate.
