Yahoo Canada's top 10 searches of 2016 revealed

Nov 30 2016, 6:18 pm

Yahoo Canada has released its top 10 searches for 2016 – and once again, Donald Trump did not win the popular vote.

Topping the list of the most searched topics in Canada was the Canadian dollar, followed by the NHL and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Trump ended up in fourth place, although he did beat out Justin Trudeau, Hillary Clinton and Céline Dion. Sorry Céline – although she did top the female celebrity search list.

Top male celebrity was Prince, following my Gord Downie + Tragically Hip, and rather palindromic result, Prince William.

Just focusing on news searches, Yahoo says Trump did in fact come top there, while Trudeau and Clinton followed in second and third place.

Meanwhile the top “obsession/craze” according to Yahoo, iPhone and Pokémon GO were only in second and third place, massacred by Game of Thrones. Well, winter IS coming.
