All of which are B's and therefore not entitled to protection outside
their primary (groundwave) service areas.  The A that Lawrence
theoretically has to protect is in Mexico, which is so far away as to
be irrelevant.

Those are all class-B's as well.

The situation on 810 is that CJVA appears to be operating well outside
its licensed parameters, and has for many years.  Likely they are
running day power and/or pattern at night.  WGY, as a class-A, is not
supposed to receive any nighttime interference from CJVA inside
U.S. borders.  (WGY's service outside the U.S. is not protected.)
