This week Bing released its annual Canadian search trends.
“2015 was a year shaped by impactful moments that moved us,” Microsoft said. “From inspiration and hope, to moments of shared tragedy and pain and people who captured our hearts, to those who challenged us to rethink our views of the world, 2015 can be characterized as the year that was filled with both local and international news, ranging from discussions around the Canadian dollar to horrific news of the earthquake in Nepal.”
On the 2015 Most Searched Athletes list, the Toronto Blue Jays dominated in Canada, with David Price and Josh Donaldson making the top 10, a stark comparison to last year when the team was absent from the list. Sidney Crosby was the top-ranking Canadian athlete, taking the fourth spot on the list.
Bing also released the Top Searched Person of 2015 and added two new lists: Top Celebrity Moments and Celebrities on The Rise. Thanks to a year full of headline-worthy antics, Canadian Justin Bieber rounded out the top three most searched people in 2015, following Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift.
