You can find these in your Scott catalogue in the Officials section ("back of the book"). They are the bilingual equivalent to the OHMS overprint stamps.

I also found a few fun "tread cancels" with #'s and I threw in a flag for fun.

and quite a few city names which I guess I'll keep for now, in a baggie

"G" = government / gouvernement.

Doh!

So if it had a "G" it was used for government mail in Quebec?

Edit - Clarification

I mean, was the G used exlusively in Quebec? Or throughout Canada?

No. Canada is a bilingual country.

In 1923, stamps perforated "OHMS" began to be used. In 1949, the OHMS perforations were replaced by "O.H.M.S." overprints, which were used for a year before being replaced by "G" overprints in 1950. These were used until the end of 1963.

Cancels are fun:
first one is duplex cancel
Second is a roller cancel
Third one a flag cancel
Keep going, enjoy.

I'm not too much up on the G's on Canada stamps, but those two EiiR (Elizabeth II Regina = Reigning Monarch Queen Elizabeth II) or QEII's look different, one thicker than the other.

In my catalogue there are 4 different types of G's ueed in different years but the same one of the QEII Wilding portrait's issues. maybe I need a new catalogue (2005).

I like the cancels, as David stated. I hadn't seen a numeral duplex on a WWII stamp like that before.

Some people collect the 2-ringed cancels and also the 4-ringed ones. Some the flag cancels, although more on cover where you can see the whole thing. Roller cancels and another specialty, hard to get a good one on a small stamp also. Has the name of the town / city, the street maybe and a number above and below (same) standing for the roller number, pr clerk number (I think).

I lie the shade on the Small Queen issue stamp. Rose or light red kind of. Nice.
