Windsor Road House From Rob Ford Photo Linked to Rinse's Comment

The Comment From Rinse about Rob Ford's Crack Use

As we've discussed,  this comment left by Rinse on March 26 included details about Rob Ford's use of crack cocaine:

Here's the thing: Rob Ford DOES use crack cocaine. A friend of mine, her mother is a serious drug addict. Rob Ford regularly goes over to her house to smoke crack.
The problem is this: The daughter wants to expose Rob Ford's drug abuse, but her oldschool Italian grandmother won't allow her to "bring shame" upon the family, long story short. So basically the daughter has become complicit with the entire thing instead of doing the right thing. Shame on you Jasmin.

According to this Globe and Mail article, information about the house Rob Ford was photographed in front of with Anthony Smith gives credence to Rinse's comments.

The house on Windsor Road is officially owned by an elderly couple. The neighbours believe the husband died in the past few years and say that the primary residents of the home are the grownup children, believed to be in their 40s.

A Redditor did a little digging and discovered the following:

15 Windsor Rd is listed to "E Basso" in the phonebook. I found an obituary that says "Elio Basso" passed away on November 6, 2009, with funeral service at a chapel at Rexdale & Kipling. The obituary lists Jasmine as his granddaughter. "Jasmin" is the name mentioned at

Here's the Canada411 listing for E Basso at 15 Windsor Road, and here's the obituary for Elio Basso that mentions Jasmine.

Holy shit.  Rinse wasn't kidding.

Update: The Star story confirming the details is here.
