not so.... the M37 and many 2.5ton and larger trucks have no rear view mirror and are legal with two door mirrors. I believe the reg states that there must be two mirrors
Yeah, you're both right. Byron for passenger cars and Robyn for big trucks.

FWIW, I finally checked the Alberta regulations.

Here, we're required to have an interior mirror-- and, because a left-side exterior mirror was supplied by the manufacturer when the vehicle was new, yeah we need to maintain it in good condition too.

So much for my idea about using only a Wink. But from what some of you have said, that's not a great idea anyway. :(
