I had a doctor’s appointment scheduled for this week, but the receptionist called to tell me the doctor isn’t feeling well.
Ça arrive même aux médecins, she said laughing. “It even happens to doctors.”
She then told me we’d have to cancel the appointment: On va devoir canceller votre rendez-vous. “We’re going to have to cancel your appointment.”
The verb canceller used in Québécois French means the same thing as annuler.
Québécois French isn’t alone in its use of canceller. In Italian, you can also hear cancellare un appuntamento.
