Parliament will be adjourning early today after the death this morning of Alberta MP Jim Hillyer.
The Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP was found in his office on Parliament Hill.
Interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose says Hillyer will be missed on the Hill and in his constituency.
First elected in 2011, Hillyer was re-elected last year with 69 per cent of the vote.
MPs will be making statements of tribute to Hillyer this afternoon and then adjourn for the day.
