R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 75 (1).
Unfortunately, the "straight-through" design of the Roush mufflers could be interpreted as "straight exhaust". You might have a tough fight ahead of you.

If the ticket was for noise, then you most likely violated a local bylaw, not the HTA.

So I got the logical part of the Code all the way until Hollywood Muffler?

I have Hollywood looks and narcissistic ways, that's so I can fit in! I guess I'm illegal in Canada. LOL

Your point of straight exhaust has merits as Roush describes these mufflers as a straight design.
