Oh so canon is the -current- opinion then, until it mutates into someone else's?
It's the story. Why is that so hard to understand? The original, core story told by the original storytellers or their authorized successors is the canon. Stories told by other people are not. The opinions of fans are not. Fans can't decide what's canon and what isn't any more than I can decide whether or not Hawai'i is one of the continental United States. Different creators can decide what the canon contains, but the canon is still one entity and the apocrypha are others. Canon is a noun, not an adjective.
