An interesting discographical subject, mentioned long ago by David.
I checked a group of Canadian Victor label scans in range 22500-25000,
but did not find another example.

An early example is Vic(C) 18789. This has:
A - Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, Sweetheart (25350-3), June 16, 1921
B - Eubie Blake and His Shuffle Along Orchestra, Baltimore Buzz (25465-2), July 15, 1921.
The Whiteman is Vic(US) 18789-B, and Blake is 18791-A.
So it appears that sides also have been changed. Vic(C) wanted the Whiteman
on its A-side and thus used the Whiteman release nr.
Pres. similar on CDB's 24142, which must have one of the Bestor sides.

Any other examples known?

Checking scans, I saw Vic(C) 24199-A on a white with gold batwing label 
(Charles Dornberger, Old McDonald), which states:
"First anniversary March 10th 1933". Anniversary of what?

>>> What's on the A side? 24142 should be Don Bestor, My Darling and Along Came 
Love. Occasionally Victor Canada did some recoupling.
