Will 23andMe relocate to Canada?

When the US Food and Drug Administration issued an order last year prohibiting 23andMe from offering a health-related DNA services I suggested they might look to relocate outside the US. It wasn't taken seriously at the time but this report (23andme casts eyes abroad after U.S. regulatory hurdle) mentions the possibility of moving to Canada.
It would be an easy move, and the spit sample collection kit the company uses is purchased from a Canadian (Ottawa) company.
