In a new study, a team of researchers has determined that only 11% of the Canadian population are paying attention to anything. “We originally set out to learn how the Ontario electorate would be making its decisions,” said Dr. Laura Vinkle, “but we discovered a profound lack of awareness of all things.”

Surveys and in-depth interviews with select subjects found that the overwhelming majority of Canadians were, most of the time, tuned out.

The human population has generally had limited focus and attention but there has been a sharp uptick in Canada over the past decade, the study found. While 17 of 20 Europeans and Asians were “out of it” 60 percent of the time, American unawareness is pegged at 76 percent and Canada a whopping 89 percent.

When contacted by URNews, a senior researcher on the project stared off into space.
