Canadian security problems?

I heard a lot of blathering in the news about Canadian security dropping the ball when it came to the Chinese man disguising himself and getting on a flight to Canada.

If you haven't heard, a Chinese man disguised himself as an old white man. He then used fake ID (passport) to get onto a flight to Canada in Hong Kong. Reports first said he only used an Aeroplan card but now they are saying he had fake ID.

Now, he never once went through Canadian security. So how the hell is Canadian security to blame for him getting on the flight. He got through Hong Kong Airport's security. He got through the cursory checks made when a person picks up their ticket or boards the plane. You could make a case for saying Chinese security dropped the ball. Airline security screwed the pooch. But Canadian security? Sod off.
