75% of appliances break in 10 years or less, CBC poll finds; Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool named by Canadians as top appliance brands that break down
A Feb.. 29, 2020 CBC article is entitled: “75% of appliances break in 10 years or less, CBC poll finds; Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool named by Canadians as top appliance brands that break down.”
An excerpt reads:
When asked to recall the manufacturer of the appliance that broke down, Kenmore was named more than any other brand, accounting for 21 per cent — or about one in five — of all appliance breakdowns in Canada.
The online survey of 1,522 adult Canadians posed questions about large household appliances, with consumers sharing details about refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves, washing machines and dryers.
I strongly support the work CBC is doing on behalf of Canadians
I have written about CBC previously. I strongly support the work of the corporation and I support discussion that seeks to underline what CBC does well and what it can do even better.
A recent post, which among other things focuses on the pressures that CBC experiences in seeking to fulfill its mandate, is entitled:
The discussion in Recasting History (2019), regarding how CBC television has depicted Canadian history in the course of its own history as a corporation, is thoughtful, well-researched, and clearly written.
I am highly pleased that I came across this study in the course of reading I’ve been doing over the past year regarding the history of Stratford, Ontario.
