Culture Shock

I've been living here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for over 6 years now. One thing that I have noticed when there is a government infrastructure project going on, you'll simply see in the billboard or notice that it is funded by the government (see photo below). Unlike in the Philippines where I grew up, whenever there is a government project, you'll always see a face of the incumbent politician and his/her name affixed in the billboard or notice thus giving you an impression that the politician you see in the billboard is the one who is funding the project. In my opinion, that practice in the Philippines should be prohibited by the law in order to prevent political advantage and gain to the incumbent government official.
