I doubt there will be any appreciable difference. They're still using a trained workforce, assembling the same high quality parts.
There is no noticeable difference in quality between the Japanese built and Canadian built RXs. In fact, RX is the most reliable vehicle according to most studies and most of them are built in North America.
This is a pretty fun read about the Canadian plant. If Lexus institutes similar policies for the ES line, I wouldn't worry.
