Via: CNN – An “Asian looking male” in his early 20s somehow managed to board an Air Canada flight, and make it all the way from Hong Kong to Vancouver, disguised as an elderly Caucasian man. He was intercepted by the Canada Border Services Agency upon landing in Canada, at which point he “proceeded to make a claim for refugee protection.”

The incident occurred on October 29 on Air Canada flight AC018 to Vancouver originating in Hong Kong. An intelligence alert from the Canada Border Services Agency describes the incident as an “unbelievable case of concealment.” The agency would not discuss when or why the man put on the disguise or details about how he boarded the plane. But the alert indicated that the suspect boarded the plane with a board pass belonging to another passenger. “It is believed that the subject and the actual United States Citizen passenger (whose date of birth is 1955) performed a boarding pass swap, with the subject using an Aeroplan card as identification to board the flight,” the alert said.

    So why don’t they just send him back – a ticket would be cheaper that housing a cheat till his bogus refugee claim is heard. We are unbelievably stupid to accept this behaviour.
