By the time it reaches Inuvik, the prefab mosque strapped to Kevin Anderson’s truck will have earned a place in the record books – even before the first worshippers pass through its door.

The stout structure will become the most northerly mosque in North America – and possibly the world – as well as the focus of what’s believed to be the world’s longest building move.
