I figured out how to fix the problem.
1. Uninstall the printer, from the Print and Scan Preference
2. From /Library/Printers, delete the entire sub-directory for the applicable printer manufacturer.
( /Library/Printers/Canon in my case )
3. Install the desired driver package provided by the printer manufacturer.
4. Add the printer ( Print and Scan Preference )
If this does not work, you may have to Reset the printing system.
To prevent Apple from messing up the drivers in the future, you also need to remember to ignore the next update.

I hope this helps if anyone else has this problem.
