I landed on May 5 of this year. The immigration officer took my Canadian Address and told me I will receive my PR card in 4 to 6 weeks, It is now the 8th week and nothing. when I did my landing I landed and returned t o the USA. Now I had planed to go to Canada and saw that I cant fly in unless I have the PR. My question is what happens if i fly into Canada from the USA and my USA passport, will they turn me away, or will they just question me and then let me in and tell me I should have gotten travel documents. I was not aware of travel documents until yesterday, but since my flight to Canada is in a few days, i know it will not be processed in time.

You can use your US passport and landing document to return to Canada. You don't need PRTD.

There is nothing "to try". A PR card is not required to enter Canada and they can't send you back because you don't have it.

Correct, I went back to Canada prior to PR card arriving, they just asked me a few question, and then let me in.
