Last October, a young man from the mainland boarded a flight to Canada wearing a silicone mask and resembling an old Caucasian man.
The man, from Fujian, took the mask off during the flight, prompting suspicion from other passengers, who notified the crew and alerted Canadian officials.
He was arrested when the flight landed in Vancouver, where he sought asylum.
