As always, CBC Ottawa's reporters were out this past week capturing all the goings-on in the region.

This week they covered a plane crash that killed seven people, heard frustrations from two teacher's unions, and attended the funeral of a five-year-old who loved the colour green.

Here are some of the highlights.

Two teachers' unions began the first phase of strike actions Tuesday in hopes of forcing the province back to the bargaining table. Simone Rivers, who has a son in Grade 4, says she supports the work-to-rule campaign. (Jean Delisle/ CBC)
