Focus on US - Canada Relations and Diplomacy Highlights Visit of Former Canadian Ambassador to Iran during Hostage Crisis

Perry B. Newman

I can think of no better way to underscore our own commitment to the US - Canada relationship than to welcome Ambassador Taylor to Boston next week.

Atlantica Group LLC, an international business development firm based in Portland, Maine, is the Lead Sponsor of a luncheon welcoming Kenneth D. Taylor, the former Canadian Ambassador to Iran during the Hostage Crisis. Ambassador Taylor's heroic efforts to save American diplomats were the subject of the recent award-winning film, Argo.

Perry B. Newman, founder and president of Atlantica Group LLC, explained, "Atlantica Group is focused on international business and policy work. A great deal of the work that we do involves US - Canada cross-border trade and investment. Our two nations share the longest undefended border in the world, and the largest bilateral trade and investment relationship in the world. Our political and economic relations are strong and deep.

"Ambassador Taylor literally put his life on the line for the sake of Canada's enduring friendship with the United States. I can think of no better way to underscore our own commitment to the US - Canada relationship than to welcome Ambassador Taylor to Boston next week."

The luncheon at which Ambassador Taylor will be speaking is being organized by the New England Canada Business Council, and will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at the Harvard Club on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. Ambassador Taylor's address is entitled, "The Iranian Situation - The Perils and Pleasures of Practicing Diplomacy." Further details are available at the event website.

"When we formed Atlantica Group back in 2000, one of my partners was former Maine Governor and former United States Ambassador to Canada Ken Curtis. Ken's life in public service and his deep respect for the US - Canada relationship continue to make a deep impression on me, particularly since he served as our Ambassador to Canada when Ken Taylor served as Canada's Ambassador to Iran.

"The opportunity to welcome Ambassador Taylor to Boston is a special opportunity to pay tribute to key partners and friends."
