This sounds terrible, but Canada is far from the strictest in the world. Your experience crossing back into the US is tainted by holding a US passport. Unfortunately Canadian customs agents have fed off the TSA and DHS power trip. The US has actually had a strong hand in changing how US border control is exerted.
