[Talk-ca] Updating the Wiki Page for Ottawa and Ontario

Hi Folks,

I've started to clean up the Ottawa wiki page [1]. I'd really like to use
this space for the local community to learn, share and work together to
improve our map. The page hasn't been touched since late 2013 (before I
found it). My initial approach is one of keeping the older information;
when I have more time or others want to jump in and review the older
material we can figure out how best to work/reorganize it. For the moment
I've been adding links and information that has come up at the monthly
Ottawa meetups.

I've also pointed the domain www.osmottawa.ca to point to the Ottawa wiki
page. Was pointing the address to the GitHub hosted page we had set up
initially to make it easier for folks to find us. If nothing else at this
point, the shorter domain is so much easier to remember:)

Longer term, I would love to figure out how we in Ontario could make better
use of the Ontario wiki page [2]. These town/city focused sub pages are
great and I'd love to really make use of them to improve our map!

At this point I would love to start the discussion of how we can revamp the
wiki pages, what's the best approach; how do we get more folks involved
etc. Really looking forward to hearing back from you:)

Cheers,

Richard
