No traceroute response from Shaw router

This is a nitpick, but I'm trying to figure out if this is something wrong on my side or something Shaw has done. When I do a traceroute, the first hop on Shaw's network will not return. If I tcpdump the traffic I'm seeing the requests go out but no response come back whatsoever, which is why I'm posting this here - I don't think this is happening on my side.


I'm in Calgary on the subnet. Does the router dealing with this subnet simply not respond to ICMP echo requests with low TTL values? I can ping it fine but not traceroute through it - a strangely specific problem.
