    Educational reasons (Classes, graduation etc)

    The best thing to do is get a doctors note, I find if you send that they will excuse you more easily.
    Not being a Canadian is a good way out...

    Not knowing alot about either case but there could be a conflict of intereast vis-a-vis the crime and how the jury was picked.

    I've been called and exempted. I work in an essential service and am married to LEO.

    I wanted to do it, though.

    Just hope that you are never the victim of a crime and have people who want to avoid being a juror when your case comes to court.

    Can of worms anyone? I know you're judged by your peers and I'm young, but sometimes older people are wiser and have seen more of life.

    Update: Court House Called and I am fully excused! Now I can relax!

    I know everyone has a thought or view, but am sorry if you have a health issue were being in a stressful situation can effect it, than do what you can to avoid it.

    And it doesn't make you LESS CANADIAN if you can't!

    I was called about 10 years ago for jury duty. It was for a court case in the next town. I simply notified them that I wanted to be excused for the following reasons. That it was winter and as I lived in the country, my child was riding the bus. I didn't want to be away from my home should he come home and have any problems( ie furnace going out, accidently locked out of house). I didn't mention that my "child" was 17 and that my neighbors are only about 500 yards away. I also said that my religious beliefs prohibited me from judging other people. I was excused and never been called again.
    Just call me Wolfie

    Their should be a list that people can join if they want to be called. Hey if they want to do it so be it. Put them on a list and call those people up first.

    and it's funny how people who can not be on a jury because of their job are like "Oh but I want to do it" HMMMM...if they didn't get paid for it I am sure they would find a way out.

    Just a thought....

    It's funny as well that all it takes is a "doctors" note to get excused from Jury duty

    You can;t have someone in jury duty with health concerns, obviously. There's lots of healthy people sitting at home on SC all day who can go lol

    Ugh, I hope to god I'm never called.
    I'd be a horrible juror, and my anxiety would go haywire.

    Here where I live even if you are summons to jury...very rarelly will you have to be a jury. The case is normally resolved before then. Unless of course it's a major case like a murder trial. I'm a bit weird but find this court stuff interesting. So I think being a jury to me is interresting.

    ? Darth is from the UK. She's just saying that she is excused because she isn't a Canadian citizen yet.
