I don't think anyone said it would be left up to a beat cop. The request would come to the RCMP with the appropriate documentation. A crown would likely be consulted and the warrant then executed, likely by the Fugitive Squad. It wouldn't be up to Canada to validate the grounds for the US requesting the arrest and extradition as long as the request was properly made.
