Fake edits near Cold Lake

Hi

A polish contributor recentlyadded to what appears to be a fake military facility near Cold Lake in Canada, which he had started 3 months ago:
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset … -109.93411

Note that his edits in Poland appears ok, but that I have personally reverted a fake island he created off the coast of Denmark (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/50439199) as well as reported him to the DWG (see the block on his profile).

Reminds me, that tramway is still there in Cold Lake as well.  I'm 99.9999% sure it's fictional.

If you are 99.9% sure then why is it still there? There's no reason to let the guy think that noone notices these things.

Ah, because (if I remember right), someone else (Edit: you) pointed it out, probably via a changeset comment, and I stepped back to let them sort it out.

Googling brings up nothing, so like I say, 99.9999% sure...

I commented on the tramway a month ago: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48948106, but I'm based in northern Europe and I'd prefer to let a local sort these things out.

I won't have time to map for about a week, but I can put it on my list.

...if the DWG hasn't gotten involved by then.
