Ok, I will. My spars were yellow. I've made many a hard landing with no detectable degradation of the canard.
I calculated that if you load the plane to gross weight the canard has the equivalent of 4G load on it just sitting on the ground. It is being static tested before you start the engine and if it doesn't break on the ground your good to fly. Better land nice tho! Hey, go pick up a Cessna by the wing tips and see what happens...
