Can't provide an answer, but here is a def. of "colo[u]r gun"


Explanation:
From Termium: English:Television (Electricity) colour gun s
OBS - In a colour television set, each of three colour guns emits one primary colour (red, green or blue). s N.B.: I can't find *anything* in either Termium or LGDT relating to electricity/llights/L.E.D.s that is called "canon" in English.
