Default Canard Rotor/Wing design-- usable for Mach1+

The Current Boeing design is a subsonic version, however would
it be possible to design a Canard Rotor/Wing that could also function
(in fixed wing mode) at Mach 1+ speeds?

Aviation Week & Space Technology, aka Aviation Leaks & Weakly,
reported several weeks ago that the Boeing Canard/Wing dragon fly
prototype crashed during a test flight. If I remember correctly, the
crash happened during the transition part of the flight, hover/cruise.

IIRC, they have said that a supersonic version might be possible using an
oblique wing arrangement.

Here's an article on it. The spokesman says it was in helicopter mode, and
had not begun transition testing. OTOH, they may have been shifting from
vertical to horizontal flight in helo mode.
