Meeting canceled

meeting canceled

No matter how you spell the past tense (or pluperfect tense, for that matter) of cancel, tomorrow night’s Budget Meeting will not happen according to the Borough Website:

“Borough Council has decided to cancel tomorrow’s (4-11-2019) Budget Meeting. We will notify residents when the discussion will be placed on a forthcoming Borough Council meeting agenda. We wanted to ensure that all had the benefit of the March 2019 Finance Reports as well as the completed 2018 Audit Report – in order to have a meaningful conversation about the budget.” – Borough facebook page

Canceled or cancelled is the past tense of the verb to cancel. Both spellings are correct; Americans favor canceled (one L), while cancelled (two Ls) is preferred in British English and other dialects. However, there is only one correct spelling of the word cancellation, no matter where you are. For a more in-depth explanation of spelling and the exceptions, keep reading.”
