Is the Canon 28-300L significantly better than the Tamron 28-300?

Absolutely but it's over 3X the price and over 2X the weight. I borrowed one of the newer Tamron versions with VC to try out and compare to my Canon. It was much softer and the focus speed really slowed at the long end and would "hunt" unless the light level was bright. I couldn't recommend it but I've been spoiled by the IQ of the Canon L.
