deleting documents in sus 8.0

After installation and printing to canon printer i need to purge the printer que but it will not clear .The box appears for me to confirm deletion but it never clears the documents ,even after a reboot the printer starts up to print unwanted documents.

How do i clear these documents. Any advise most welcome as i am wasting lots of paper and consumables.

thanks !

Type lpq to geta list of print jobs.
Take down the job number(s) of the print job(s) you wish to be rid of.
Then type lprm job#
Or if you want to clear all print jobs type lprm -
