Afaik, you cannot fly into the US as a British citizen (they don't care about you being a PR in Canada, means nothing to them) without a return ticket in case you get refused entry. I'm not sure an onward ticket to Vancouver would suffice, unless it was on the same ticket as the Seattle leg....

I don't see a problem with this, providing you have a ticket with you for your trip to Vancouver.

We did a similar thing recently, when we were going on holiday. Our round trip was from LA to Tahiti. We then had a return WestJet ticket to get us from Calgary to LA and back, after our holiday. On our return leg, the check-in agent in Tahiti asked to see our WJ e-ticket/email (as they either want proof of where you are staying in the US before you board, or proof that you are transiting) and when we went through immigration in LA, they didn't ask to see it, they just asked 'how long we were going to Canada for' etc etc, on we went.

My tight-arsed friends have done this when visiting Vancouver and they didn't have a problem. Ironically they booked a hire car and drove from Seattle to Vancouver, only saving a small amount of money for a huge amount of time and energy spent.

If you choose to go this route and book a hire car or take the bus, i would book in advance to show as evidence should you need it.
