NR Canada vs. MapBuilder Topo

I know others have asked about the Canadian layers in the past, and the conclusion was that nothing is missing in the MapBuilder alternative. I disagree and would like to offer a different perspective. I personally greatly prefer the aesthetic of the NR Canada maps to MapBuilder, but they also offer different information. Take a look at the attached example.
I'd prefer to have the NR Canada source in the basemap dropdown, but I'm OK with it being available as a custom source. Please don't remove it entirely.

    We're not planning on removing that at this time (really don't see any specific reason we would do so). We do also have scans of maps for Canada from NRCAN on the scanned topo layer.
