Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: […] I would hate it if a farmer were doing some burning on his property
and it was alleged that he was proceeding without reasonable care, and that farmer was charged and then left to a jury. Everyone must remember, of course, that sitting behind this offence is the criminal confiscation legislation, which could see a farmer who was doing a burn back —

Ms M.M. Quirk: A back-burn.

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: A back-burn; I thank the member. I am a city boy; it has been a while since I have been on the land.

Mrs M.H. Roberts: I remember when you used to have sideburns.

Mr J.R. QUIGLEY: I do not want to say how old the member is if she can remember that!
