Interesting... My memory bank says CF-BXO was operated through the fifties by Queen Charlotte Airlines, but I don't know where she ended up after the Wardair lease.

P.S> Many Cansos were built by Boeing Canada in Vancouver. 'Scuse the thread creep.

Thank you,twochai, but I think that was very much a team effort. Pigboat,Indiafourtwo et al, gave some excellent contributions/help as did your clues.
Two photographs of CF-BXO during the sixties.


Open house.
