I think I need to make it clear before writing this article. That is to say, I have no hostile feelings to China or Chinese people; far from it, I actually have Chinese friends in Canada and they are all good people. I bought a working chair when I came to Obihiro about a month ago. It was nicely designed with a very reasonable price. I had been happily using it for a month and it was broken a few weeks later. One of the sea-star-shaped legs was damaged like this picture and I was almost fell on my hips. Fortunately, I wasn't injured at all and the store person brought me another chair with apologize on the next day. This is my personal feelings, but made-in-China products are inferior in their quality to products which were made in other countries including Japan, USA, Europe and Taiwan. Of course, I think the news about the pork buns with cardboard or the pet food with poisonous material are the extreme cases, but the image to made-in-China products is bad and they need to reconsider how to control the quality of products.
