The dark blue car and the light blue car (assuming it's too close to the intersection)

I think the light blue car is technically legally parked as long it's at least 6 meters away from stop sign or crosswalk/intersection... However the dark blue car is illegally parked because it's too close to the fire hydrant. (minimum of 5 meters away) Not sure about other side tho.

there needs to be 5 meters space from the cross section... assuming that the light blue has 5 meters, its legel unless otherwise noted.
dark blue is way to close... illegal..

if its in a residential area, the red and green cars are legally parked unless it has one of those yellow checkered street sign...

again, if there are signs that permit parking, the only car illegally parked would be the dark blue car

I believe the red car is legal. Ontario street, near Langara, used to be like this until they put in the roundabouts.

At this time, assuming all other vehicle are parked in an area without restrictions, and is within legal distances required from intersection, etc,

The dark blue car, lower left would be illegally parked.

Badly.

I was in a subdivision in Richmond on Saturday which had a T intersection, there were two "no stopping" signs in that particular intersection, I take it because the roadway is very narrow with two small islands on either side.
