I have reported this upstream.  This is

[ 1303161 ] Canon BJC-250 output is too light

I'm afraid that Canon do not provide open specifications for their
printers, and as a result the canon driver was reverse engineered.
Its quality on different Canon models varies, and it does not
currently have a maintainer, though work is currently in progress to
support newer PIXMA models.  If it's a straightforward change, I think
it's fixable.
