On Bureaucracy and/or Civic Duty

The Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario has randomly selected my name from a municipal voters list, as a candidate for next year's Jury Roll. They sent me mail, in Qu├ębec, to tell me this.

They say I am legally required to fill out the accompanying questionnaire and return it to them, so they can determine whether to add me to their list.

I don't know to what degree this legal requirement applies to people who don't live in Ontario anymore, nor, if I fill it out, whether they could actually summon me back across the border.

It all seems vaguely broken.
