Canadians are a bizarre bunch...

Or maybe it's just those among us who use Yahoo! to search for news.

These are the Yahoo! Canada's top 10 news search results:

1. OLGC*
2. Halloween
3. Dancing With the Stars
4. Toronto Maple Leafs
5. Shanna Moakler
6. People Magazine
7. Lotto 649
8. Tia Carrere
9. Iran
10. Income trusts

*Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation

Halloween?? Dancing With the Stars?? Tia Carrere??

I suppose it good to know that at least someone in the country is concerned about real things like Iran and the income trust scandal!

So, we can conclude a few things from these search results:

1. People looking for important news stories probably use Google (until we find out the results of those searches for this year).
2. People who use Yahoo's news search most likely buy supermarket tabloids too.
3. Canadians just really don't give a crap.
4. We're just a bunch of gambling, starstruck trick or treaters with an occasional interest in money scandals and possible nukes.
5. All of the above.
