Coquitlam Teachers' Association will be canvassing candidates in the upcoming provincial election for their views on education but won't be endorsing any, according to president Teresa Grandinetti.

"We always survey the candidates on education issues and send their responses to all teachers who teach and live in the four Tri-City ridings," Grandinetti stated in an email. "The CTA also usually sends a cover letter while not endorsing candidates does ask teachers to vote for 'education friendly' candidates."
