I may have been wrong about not getting help doing this but its still not a good thing to do in my books.
The laws concerning decoding encrypted radio signals here in Canada is illegal just like in the states. Where the law gets kinda fuzzy is what constitutes encryption?
Industry Canada's definition of encryption and it's laws are here:
Their definition of encryption is:
2. "encrypted" means treated electronically or otherwise for the purpose of preventing intelligible reception.
If you go further down the document, in section 9 you will find this:
9. (1) No person shall
(c) decode an encrypted subscription programming signal or encrypted network feed otherwise than under and in accordance with an authorization from the lawful distributor of the signal or feed.
(d) operate a radio apparatus so as to receive an encrypted subscription programming signal or encrypted network feed that has been decoded in contravention of paragraph (c).
Subsections C and D clearly state that decoding signals is prohibited.
