Telegrams were sent on Taylor's behalf, as he made sure awareness was spread. Taylor agreed to house two of the six Americans alongside his colleague John Sheardown, who agreed to house the remaining four.
He invited Anders and his colleagues to stay at the home he shared with his wife. Come on over". The Sheardowns sheltered four of the six Americans for 79 days in their room home in the heart of Tehran. During the months they housed the Americans, the Sheardowns took creative precautions to avoid tipping off the authorities.
Sheardown had to drive to multiple grocery stores daily and take garbage with him on route to work, to camouflage the amount of refuse they were generating all while being under Iranian surveillance. Anders even states that it was John who kept their confidence high and who kept them feeling secure through the months. Sheardown told the Associated Press. Flora McDonald suggested moving the Americans out of Iran, a decision based on Taylor's promptings and warnings.
It was a decision that U. S Government officials were putting off. A move that could have easily failed. She was non-paternalistic in her obligations as Taylor's superior. MacDonald became a vital point of contact for the American government officials. This was around the time suspicions were escalating and it was essential that a decision be made.
One could ask if it was not for Flora MacDonald's persistence and pressure, would the U. We can assume that if she did not speak up when Taylor needed the assistance, the results could have been detrimental for both parties. He was first alerted by the fact that U. He found it hard to believe that the Americans did not know exactly how many people they had in Tehran. Told by the Minister at Canada's Washington Embassy, Gilles Mathieu, that Canada was "the most useful American ally in the crisis," Pelletier assumed that the American escapees were harbored by the Canadians.
Canadian Ambassador to the United States Peter Towe, warned Pelletier of the danger to the Americans should the story be broken and urged him to hold off on publication. Pelletier, knew the implications of publishing and had already decided that he would not break the story until the Americans were safely out of Iran.

Pelletier refused:. As a professional who demonstrated true integrity, Pelletier managed to convince his managing editor and team, to agree not to publish immediately. There were many Canadians involved in the rescue of the six American hostages. While Kenneth Taylor's work and effort claimed him fame and multiple awards in the U. S, the others stood out as unsung heroes. It is important to see that each individual impacted one another in some way. One could not do it alone.
Canada history: Jan 27,1980- The famous “Canadian Caper” rescue
This display of international co-operation shows that as professionals, it is important to have courage and integrity. Without these traits, the Canadians would have been bystanders allowing the Americans to be captured. What direct reason did they have in interfering with such circumstances? We knew how much they could lose, but what would they gain?
Kenneth Taylor and John Sheardown took on this mission out of loyalty to an old friend. Flora MacDonald agreed that it should be top priority, even though it did not concern Canada and Jean Pelletier proved even the small task could have huge outcomes. Jean Pelletier had the news scoop of a life time. He could have exposed the six Americans at the Canadian Embassy and sky rocketed his career. Instead, he realized the significance of keeping this story under wraps for the safety of the Americans and Canadians alike.
