Look up the definition of the word canon. 

"the works of a particular author or artist that are recognized as genuine."

Since it's Akira Toriyama's story we're talking about, guess who the particular artist whose works are genuine is?

Granted, now that he has a person he says is the chosen successor, that individual's works are equally canon.

Guess who isn't the successor?

Correct, Toei Animation.

So guess who's story doesn't matter in terms of canon?

Correct, Toei Animation.

But I guess since we're accepting the anime as canon Bardock should be changed to note he is a brilliant scientist who invented the Power Ball technique.

After all, the can of worms is much larger now that all animes are canon.
