Honestly, I never cared for the word "canon" used to describe a fictional universe. As a Christian, I prefer the word "consistency" or "Continuity". Canon has traditionally been used to describe events set forth in the Bible. Star Trek is not a religion. It is a TV show that has an imense following and 40 years of televised history. So "canon" is not an appropriate term in this case. I am an advocate of consistency. And so far, what I have seen and read concerning this latest iteration of Trek shows that JJ may be disregarding established Star Trek continuity in favor of a BSG-style re-inmagining of the franchise. I don't like that idea, but there's nothing I can do about it. Just my two cents.
