During his second term in the House of Commons in 1961, Wratten attempted to establish a national holiday in honour of Canada's first Prime Minister by supporting a parliamentary bill. Had this become law, John A. Macdonald Day would have been observed each year on a Monday in mid-February. Macdonald's birthdate in January was deemed too soon after the Christmas and New Year's holiday period for this purpose.
