Annual list released of what Canadians googled the most in 2017

As we wind down the year and gather to say “goodbye”  (or maybe good riddance!) to 2017, we are reflecting on what happened in the past twelve months. The good, bad, and the ugly — we’ve experienced so much, wouldn’t you agree? From the most heartbreaking goodbyes to some of our most cherished entertainers to the most bizarre year in politics south of the border, we can all agree that it’s been an interesting ride! We’re poring over the recently released 2017 Year in Review data released by Google Canada on the most searched topics by us in our country. We definitely googled a few of these ourselves and now a few have piqued our interests! What the heck is a Boiled Egg Diet?
