Besides the tainted milk and the lead paint in children’s toys products from China by the millions have been distributed with little or no concern for consumer safety.



See some articles below.



So now the Port Authority is going to get its glass from “you guessed it”……China



Not just glass but the glass that is to protect the most vulnerable floors of the “Freedom Tower” (and it will always be the “Freedom Tower” no matter what the Port Authority says)



Here is a little history



Early in 2006 when the Freedom Tower” had to be re-designed because it was too close to local streets the Port Authority was also told that there was too much glass on the lower floors of the design of the Freedom Tower and that 80% of injuries from terror attacks come from broken glass. A reasonable approach would be to eliminate the glass. No way, can’t lose that valuable window space. They stated that they were going to limit the size of the panes and do whatever was necessary to assure that the best products would be supplied to prevent injury.



Fast forward to today when we find out that the contract for this glass was given to a Chinese company.



So let’s get this straight. The Port Authority could not find one company in the US to supply this glass.



They couldn’t find one company anywhere else in the world to supply this glass.



So where to they go?



To a country that has probably the worst track record when it comes to consumer safety.



Does anyone think that this contract being awarded shortly after a Chinese company became the first tenant of the Freedom Tower is just a coincidence?



But when has anything concerning Ground Zero or the Port Authority been on the level?



Do you think that people who refuse to build to NYC Building and Fire Codes really care about safety?



But once again they are an Authority and can do whatever they want.



And it will be just a matter of time before they force their workers or other state and federal workers to occupy the offices they can’t rent.



And it will be just a matter of time before they will be looking for bailouts like the MTA.



Where are our elected officials?



We know where they were after 9/11. Hopefully it will not take another 9/11 to get them to stand up to the PA.




Let the Port Authority know that we won’t be fooled again.
