Canadian officials have detained a young Asian man who boarded a flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver disguised as an elderly white male.
Canadian Border Services said the man wore a silicone mask covering his head and neck in what they called an “unbelievable case of concealment”. Suspicions were raised when an apparently elderly passenger was noticed with young looking hands. Later he emerged from a wash room looking like a man in his twenties.
The man is reported to be seeking refugee status in Canada. I wonder if he could make it without being caught if he didn’t remove the mask during the flight; or perhaps it was his intention to get caught since he’s looking for refuge anyway.
