I'm of two minds on this. On one hand, this seems like the kind of thing you'd like to have, even if you don't need it. On the other, I have a niggling feeling somebody's making big money from this.
I also pissed in an old woman's sauce pan when I was a child. Have you?

Most likely.  And I question how safe they're going to be in Canada, since at least theoretically they've got protection in the US that they don't have elsewhere.

But at the same time, I think that it's probably smart to have a secure backup SOMEWHERE, preferably in secret.  I wonder if Elon Musk or someone could be convinced to fund a global information backup somewhere? 
Congratulations.  You found Ronald Reagan. He’s living in each and every one of you.  Just waiting to gnaw his way out of your chest and skitter off into the ventilation ducts.
