You don't understand the purpose of a protective order. It isn't going to keep a severely agitated person away in many cases, but it may keep someone from coming around and then losing control.
Of course, if it doesn't do the job you need to be able to protect yourself while waiting for the mounties. It is no guarantee that they don't blow the order off, but they are more likely to take the problem into custody than they are without a protective order. They are also more likely to respond and to respond sooner if 911 knows you have a protective order.
You may also be on better legal grounds if you have a protective order against whom you shoot.
