After promoting new film Argo at the Toronto Film Festival, Ben Affleck was keen to express his thanks for not only the host country's procurement of the festival, but their positive interventions throughout American history.
The Iranian hostage thriller sees Ben in the directing chair as well as onscreen.
Based on a true story, the film details a joint rescue mission between the CIA and the Canadian authorities to hide six American hostages as workers on a film set.
Starring John Goodman and Bryan Cranston, Ben is keen to recognise the heroics of his Canadian counterparts.
He said: "It´s really a movie about Canadian heroics and the relationship between Canada and America."
