Toriyama decided it was time to give Bardock a background straight from him and not just design him for the animators to do what they want with him. So its canon now and that won't change until he decides if he wants to retcon it or not.

Yeah, I get that, but I figured that since Bardock from Bardock - The Father of Goku has appeared in a couple video games since then with no mention of Minus besides Gine, I figured that everyone was just going to ignore it.
The thing I liked about Bardock was that he wasnt a good person and he honestly didnt care much for his sons. It made sense with how saiyans were portayed and felt consistent with the rest of the story.
Hope they make Bardock into Super Mega Saiyan with power level of 77 million. Capable of going toe to toe with Frieza. He needs to be strong since he is Goku's father. Nothing makes story of main character going from adventure to adventure and becoming stronger better than having his greatness explained by genes. Also I like the fact that Goku's parents are both mega sensitive human-like beings instead of ruthless Saiyans who could care less about his existence. This improves the story a lot.
Also Superman is the greatest character in history of the modern world.
