Senator HINCH (Victoria) (14:08): by leave—I'd like to briefly add my tribute to the brave firefighters in south-west Victoria and in southern New South Wales, and to tell the people who have lost their homes and irreplaceable possessions that our thoughts are with them. Miraculously, as you've heard, in Victoria no lives were lost this time, but there are always losses in the animal world. Anybody in Victoria who has lived through Ash Wednesday and Black Saturday knows the power and the horror of bushfires. We don't and we won't forget the heroics and the community spirit in such dark times.
