Pilots did what they had to do.
The lead pilot, Ibrahim, said he credits his pilot training for helping him land the plane safely.

I had a look for C-GNBP and the first thing that pops up is a YouTube video referencing the plane landing on the 407 with ATC -- couldn't say if it's accurate but I thought to link it here in case it is.

I don't know if the video is B-Roll or is from the this flight? This is where I feel the legitimacy is questioned

NOT a Sim ... really did happen exactly as reported ...
