Same for me. In Vancouver, because it's pre-cleared US. At which point i realised that the apple and orange i had planned to eat in YVR (I was connecting) were now a problem. So i told the customs guy, who looked a bit exasperated and sent me into the "agriculture" penalty box. Where my apple was deemed to be safe but the orange not. Other than a 5-10 minute wait, no bad things happened and i definitely wasn't $500 lighter afterwards.
