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:
Recasting History (2019) features well-researched, clearly written analysis of CBC television’s depictions of Canadian history
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.
