Default Crossing the border quickly

Hi guys,

I need some help quite bad!

I am both a UK citizen and Canadian citizen. I am currently in the US using my UK passport on the visa waiver program (I am on my UK passport because my new Canadian passport didn't reach me in time before I left for the US).

I have to be out of the US by this coming Sunday, 19th of September according to my I-94W card in my passport. Someone was supposed to be booking me a flight out of the country but has gone AWOL on me, not replying to emails and calls, etc.

I don't want to overstay my visa waiver, so how realistic is it for me to drive across the border to Canada so I can get rid of my I-194 - stay in Canada for a few hours - and then cross BACK over the border to the US using my Canadian passport. This will buy me time and allow me to get my flight sorted out. I have to come back over because I don't really have anywhere to stay in Canada. Not anyone thats near anyway.

I know no one can really give me a for sure answer, but I am likely to be able to pull this off? I will just say I am visiting friends/family for a few days.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you so much.

No one can just give me an opinion on this...?

Thank you.

You are asking in wrong forum - we are dealing here with Canadian immigration matters and your question is about US immigration. Ask in proper forum please...
