My question is what if you have a US brokerage account denominated in US dollars and you sell something for a capital gain?

Have you checked the treaty? I seem to recall that unlike dividends, cap gains are not dual taxed. Of course all I paid attention to was US citizen and resident selling Canadian stock from a US account, CNI, specifically.
