What do Justin Bieber, Stephen Harper, and bacon have in common? Canadians love to Google them

Yesterday, it was Facebook's annual year in review. Today, it's Google's turn to grab a few blog headlines.

According to the Google Zeitgeist for 2012, Canadians were interested in Pinterest and bacon, searched a lot for Stephen Harper and the Biebs, weren't sure how to rock, and didn't (and probably won't ever) understand love.
