So can we say those with white foreheads are definitely Cacklers?

Yes, a small portion of Cackling Geese sport white foreheads. Some are more important pronounced then others.

According to my sibley field guide, this is just a plumage variation.

In the Sibley guide, it shows that a small portion of the population of both Canada and cackling geese can sport the white forehead, as well as a reduced amount of white, verging on a a brant-like head and neck.

So, no.
