Windshield help needed 01 Diplomat

I had a huge problem today with my 01 38 Diplomat. Its been sitting level on the jacks for the past 3 or 4 weeks, and today I had to move it. I lowered the rear down 1st, both jacks at the same time, while the front was still on the jack. This is how Ive always done it. Well, I have no idea what happen this time vs other times but the body twisted or flexed, and the LH windshield cracked and the bottom corner popped out of the body. Ive never had anything like this happens before, its more than just a little upsetting. Both my windshields are cracked now. I drove it about 10 or 15 feet because I had to, and by the time I got that far it had shifted allot and was 3/4 of the way back in the body, so I took my screw driver and got the rubber gasket and glass back pretty much where is should be. So, 1st big question, is it safe to drive ? As far and I am concerned and can tell the glass and gasket is all back in the body and looks pretty normal all things considering, Im just not sure if its more prone to happen again now ? 2nd question, any idea where to get new windshields for this ? Any repair shops that anyone can recommend in southern Ontario, Canada ?

I got my left and right windshields for my '04 Camelot from Coach Glass in Elkhart, Indiana a few months ago for about $450 each. I picked them up myself and ended up hiring a local glass installer to put them in.
