Little mosque on the permafrost

Little mosque on the permafrost

The prefab structure, built in Winnipeg and bound for Inuvik, teetered to one side of a flatbed as two trucks inched it over a narrow bridge near the boundary of Alberta and the Northwest Territories. That’s when a nearby construction crew arrived to even out the load and spirit the mosque safely across.
