I’ll be eligible to apply for US citizenship next month. I’m pretty well settled here and have no current plans to leave. Do I want to move and stay in Canada? At the moment, no… but I like having options. But if i lose my PR, it’s not the end of the world. My interest is if the border officials would even ask you about your PR status if you enter with your US passport .

So to answer your question: I am meh about potentially losing my PR although I’d rather not lose it.
I haven’t travelled during pandemic but prior to I was never asked about PR status (or whether I had status) when traveling on US passport. They may know and not ask because I always travel across border with a Canadian citizen spouse.

I've entered Canada using only my US Passport while having Canadian PR numerous times and it usually goes like this:

CBSA: What brings you to Canada?
me: I live and work here.
CBSA: Work visa?
me: PR
CBSA: okay welcome home

Hey everyone,
I will have a short vacation in early May, took a week off for Memorial day week. I will hop into my car with my US Passport and drive to Canadian border . If CBSA asks me about my Canadian PR status I will simply deny having it. After I come back from Canada I will report what happened. If they are able to figure out that I am Canadian PR and send me back with permanent ban on entry, I will troll the heck out of the officers, I will film them, interrogate them and come back to US with laughter and post a video on my Youtube video channel and my personal blog. If I am able to cross the border, have a nice, short vacation and fun, I will report on it also. Stay tuned.
Feel free to ask me questions when I return. As I said, my strategy will be to present myself as US Citizen ONLY and deny the fact that I am Canadian PR.
Looking forward to @jakklondon coming back with his amazing border story.
