The Canadian ambassador Kenneth Taylor, who is played by American actor Victor Garber in “Argo,” told The New York Times that he was surprised over Iran’s reaction to the movie.

“I’m not sure what the Iranians found wrong,” Taylor said. “It will be amusing to see what they take issue with. I think the Iranians know the true story of the Canadian involvement.”
