There has been a lot of local news recently in the Ottawa blogosphere.  Below are some of the posts that have appeared on local blogs.

Ottawa Rickshaw notes that Star Wars Identities, a popular museum exhibit that showcases the characters from the popular Star Wars films, is scheduled to take place at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum from May 10 to September 2.

A press release on Coun. Tim Tierney's blog announces that Ottawa will be hosting nine games, including a Quarterfinal match, for the FIFA Women's World Cup that Canada is hosting in the summer of 2015. In a second press release, details are given for an Easter egg hunt that is taking place at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum and Billings Estate National Historic Site on Saturday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 pm.

Spacing Ottawa has a round-up of local news stories on development-related issues, as well as providing an update on the recent collapse of the Ogilvy building next to the Rideau Centre.

I missed this post when it first went up on the Westboro Community Association blog, which announced a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters Ottawa, which is occurring at the Orange Gallery at 233 Armstrong on April 11.  Tickets for the cocktail night / silent auction cost $30.

Climate Ottawa provides details on the the City's greenhouse gas roundtable, in which Mayor Jim Watson expressed a commitment to setting, meeting and exceeding greenhouse gas emissions targets.

If you live in the Hintonburg / Wellington West area, Childfree has a great post on the latest news from the neighbourhood, along with photographs.

Finally, Maria from I Believe in Story reviews the exhibit Eleven Women Facing War that is currently taking place at the Canadian War Museum.  After reading her review I was motivated to go and see the exhibit for myself.
