Not surprisingly, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was the most Googled person in Canada this year.

Google released its 13th annual list of top searches on Tuesday.

Searches about Ford shot up in May, when news appeared about a video of him smoking crack, but reached an all-time high in November during a spell of admissions and apologies.

The deaths of actors Cory Monteith and Paul Walker followed Ford on the list of top Google trends.

Ford and Monteith were also the top two Canadians to trend, according to Google.

The dance moves of Miley Cyrus were the top "What is" search, with Canadians wanting to find out about twerking.

And Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau beat out Prime Minister Stephen Harper as the most Googled federal politician.
