Except they are, in Canada?
"Jamming Devices are Prohibited in Canada:
THAT'S THE LAW
The importation, manufacturing, distribution, offering for sale, sale, possession and use of radiocommunication jamming devices in Canada are prohibited under sections 4, 9 and 10 of theRadiocommunication Act."
They explicitly mention GPS jamming in that, too….
