A member of parliament has died.
Interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose confirms that Alberta MP Jim Hillyer died Wednesday.
Initial reports suggest he died of a heart attack in his office, just off Parliament Hill.
Hillyer was first elected to the House of Commons in 2011 in the Lethbridge riding and was re-elected last fall in the new riding of Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner.
Hillyer was a cancer survivor and had a bone marrow transplant in 2003.
Hillyer was 41.
