No they cannot.
They have no reason to do so and the CRA made it clear that there was a maximum that could be seized. They should remove that amount from your account and release the hold at once.
I suggest going as high up in the bank as possible on Tuesday and put them on notice that if you suffer any damages as a result of their improper seizure you will sue them.
