Auto manufacturers have changed their policies many times over the years. I would call Mercedes Canada and ask what the current policy is on importing vehicles from the US, then call the dealer you plan to service the car at to make sure the answer is consistent.
Last time I bought in the US (about 6 years ago) Benz was one of the companies that outright wouldn't honor factory warranty, even on pre-owned cars. I don't know if that's still the case, as there was some legal grey areas for them to do that.
Even still, often it was still worth bringing a car up to save $10,000 even if you had to spend $4000 on a quality aftermarket warranty, or just save the $10,000 for repairs over the long run.
