If you are what you Google, it’s safe to say that Montrealers have fairly good taste.

As the year draws to a close, Google has released its annual list of top-trending searches, and top-of-mind topics for Canadians in 2018, which ranged from tragic deaths of iconic figures and devastating tragedies to popular box office movies that viewers just couldn’t get enough of.

Here in Montreal, the most overall searched term was the World Cup, followed by cannabis and the tragic deaths of legendary chef Anthony Bourdain and rapper Mac Miller.

Here’s hoping Daily Hive Montreal cracks the top 10 list for 2019.
