Google Canada says the U.S. election was the top trending search by Canadians on its platform this year.

The company's list of the top trending searches, released Wednesday, says "US election" was the most-searched term by Canadians, followed by "coronavirus."

Basketball player Kobe Bryant, who died in January, was the third trending search, followed by "Zoom" and "Raptors."

The terms "CERB" - for Canada Emergency Response Benefit - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and American actor Naya Rivera who died this summer were also among the top 10.

U.S. politics rounded off the list, with "Joe Biden" and "Trump vs. Biden" taking the final two spots.

Air Canada stock, the April Nova Scotia shooting, "CERB extension," and "Justin Trudeau press conference" were among the top trending Canadian news items.
