Ted ( 1930- ) and Ann ( 1930- ) Manyk lived in Toronto. They had several businesses in Ontario and moved to British Columbia in 1975. They are the parents of four children, Robert, Daniel, Debera and Monica. In 1978 they purchased the Ruby Lake resort and restaurant on the Sechelt Peninsula. During the two years that they operated that restaurant they hosted TV crews that were filming on the Peninsula along with travellers and residents. In 1980 they purchased the Museum Inn at Saltery Bay. Having surmounted the physical difficulties with the property, the restaurant was a success. In 1982 they moved the building to a piece of property on Padgett Road, just outside the City boundaries. They named the establishment “The Frontier Pub. “ The Pub was very popular and to expand and increase seating they purchased a portable school and developed a cabaret. The Manyk’s sold the business in 1990 and retired. The Frontier Pub burned to the ground in 1992.
