I was all lined up and looking forward to attending to the BC Supreme Court on Oct 31 to fulfill my civic duty, for an unknown criminal trial. Had I been picked during jury selection that day, the trial would have started shortly after in the coming days/wks. I had my employer on board to continue my salary for 4-6 wks if necessary.
Then on Monday, I received a cancellation notice from the sheriffs office.
Today's news is the Monty Robinson jury selection for a trial that was to start on Nov 18, has been cancelled by the judge this week. Maybe a coincidence, maybe not.
