That's ITAR you're talking about. It's a US law that bans the export of those and other goods, except to authorized dealers (who obtain their authorization through the State Department).

So it's not that it's illegal to bring it into Canada, it's illegal to take it out of the US. Which is why Aimpoints are so popular everywhere else in the world (it's a Swedish company not subject to ITAR).
