You talk as if we're all incapable of making intelligent, informed decisions and choices about any issues that may arise between our dual national attachments. That's your opinion only. There are many ways that having substantial numbers of Canadians with dual citizenships from a variety of countries give Canada important and beneficial links with those countries.

That's one issue.

Next:
Note that the legal "loyalties" you cited include our Head of State, and our laws.
It does not include the Government of Canada, a partisan political body that must tolerate people dissenting and protesting against it, because that IS democracy.

Democracy easily erodes into fascism if we allow ourselves to be forced into blind loyalties and enforced 'nationalism', and curtailment of freedoms.

That's the danger. More regulation and more enforcement don't mean a better Canada.
Maintaining important and beneficial links to other countries has nothing to do with dual citizenship.
