MONT TREMBLANT. Que. Already-strained Zam- bian-Canadian relations suf- fered another setback Friday when the Zambian delegation to the Commonwealth meeting re- fused a flight from Ottawa after an apparent protocol mix-up at the airport. Conference press officer Paul Akehurst told reporters the Zambian led by Vice-President Mainza turned back from a full air- craft as 24 visiting delegations boarded shuttle flights to this mountain resort for informal weekend sessions of the Com- monwealth meeting. Instead of taking another the delegation look their cars back into Mr. Akehurst said. Prime Minister Trudeau's press Pierre said there was no indication whether the Zamblans would take a. flight although the Canadian government was ar- ranging another plane. Prime Minister Trudeau and five other delegation leaders are scheduled to arrive here to- day. Two others are staying in Ot- tawa. Relations between Canada and Zambia are already trou- bled by the killing in May of two Canadians by Zainbian sol- diers on the Rhodesian border. External Affairs Minister Mit- chell Sharp says the Zambian government still has not given a satisfactory explanation for the incident. Mr. Akehurst also revealed Hut the first of six flights ferry- ing the delegations from Ottawa dropped from radio contact for 10 minutes during the 35-minute flight. Search and rescue crews were but no rescue planes had taken off before con- tact was re-established. On board were British Minuter Edward Cypriot Foreign Minister John CI. and Fijian For- eign Minister Ratu Sir Kanii- aeae Mara.
