Default Entering Canada from the USA via land crossing with expired PR card

Good morning all,
Let us say someone is a US Citizen and has a US Passport, and that person is also a Permanent Resident of Canada. This person met the eligibility requirements to become a citizen and started a Canadian citizenship application. This application is progressing, and as of this moment, all items bar the "take your oath" are completed.
However, their PR card expired in mid February, and they were considering visiting the US (Buffalo by land crossing).

Would they be able to re-enter Canada without renewing their PR card, and simply show the expired card, and other identity documents, eg; Ontario Drivers licence?

The person mentioned that on their last trip back from the US when crossing by land border they mentioned the their card would expire and the border person stated they could still re-enter even if the card was expired, but one does wonder if that is something that should be trusted.

PRTD can only be applied for outside of Canada, and the various things I've read seem to indicate it's needed for commercial carrier trips, and there is a reference to private vehicles, which seems to indicate things may be different if you're coming back in your own car, but it's not explicitly stating this.

Anyone have any ideas (apart from "don't bother going across if you are worried" as that's been discussed as an option)
