That is good to know, probably why I never done it myself. Lot of the stuff I've learned was from just seeing how others did it when I took something apart.
This is only true because even canadian plastic boxes have a metal bonding strip for the mounting screws.
US boxes have no such provision., if the ground is not connected to the device, the device is not grounded. Unless you're using an all metal box.
