comment Children with a different surname to parent - UK citizen - UK passport control
@Tor-EinarJarnbjo no argument from me on matters of logic or fact. But government recommendations are a thing of their own and worth knowing about

@Tor-EinarJarnbjo well in that case a letter from the parent with the same last name asserting that the other parent is a parent and is allowed to undertake this trip could perhaps have served the same purpose

I have no idea. Nonetheless, my government recommends doing it travel.gc.ca/travelling/children/consent-letter

whenever a child travels with only one parent, it is wise to have a letter from the other parent permitting it. This would probably have prevented your difficulties. On the face of it demanding a birth certificate seems silly, but perhaps the officer felt an abducting parent might not be able to get one?

comment Is NEXUS clearly better than Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check for US citizens?
alas I don't really know the conditions for the various programs. If someone wants to do the research and write it up, that would be cool.

for example, you can't get Nexus if you've ever misbehaved wrt to customs before, but you might still be able to get preCheck. I think also you have to have lived at the same address for some period of time for Nexus. And so on. It's not an automatic approval just because you are a US citizen.
