Toronto Mayor Rob Ford not only captured international headlines this year after admitting to smoking crack cocaine -- he also topped Google’s list of trending searches in Canada for 2013.

Google Canada’s 13th annual Year End Zeitgeist list reveals the year’s top trending searches for Canadians, offering a “uniquely Canadian perspective on the year’s major events and hottest trends.”

Cory Monteith, who died of a heroin overdose, and Paul Walker, who died in a car crash, ranked second and third overall.

Rounding out the top five overall trending search queries was Tim Bosma, the Hamilton father whose remains were found after he disappeared in May, and the Boston marathon attack.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield and Nobel prize winner Alice Munro came in the top 10 list of most searched Canadians, coming in fourth and ninth respectively.

Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was the most searched federal politician of 2013, reaching an all-time high during the Liberal Party Leadership Convention in April.

The Maple Leafs came in at number one in the top trending Canadian sports team, followed by the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators.

Sci-fi blockbusters cracked the top searched movies in Canada, with “Gravity,” the “Hunger Games” sequel and “Pacific Rim” all making the list.

Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad,” meanwhile, was the top trending TV show in its final season.

As for this year’s most searched cocktail? The Sourtoe: a concoction originating from Dawson City, Yukon, which involves a human toe in a glass of whiskey.

The drink made headlines in August when a customer in the Dawson City bar purposefully swallowed the mummified toe.
