Tangentabacus, by no means do I wish to justify the guards' actions. However, whatever actions were taken by the guards would have to be justified under Canadian law (making me wholly unable to comment on the legality thereof).

We may have a Canadian lawyer around here somewhere, or someone familiar with US/Canadian agreements that would affect the actions of border guards. The actions taken by those Canadian border guards took place on Canadian soil under Canadian law.

I will take that to mean that they are American citizens, but residence is actually an entirely separate question.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
