Maybe USA has more malls, so usage is spread out a bit there?

Most of the really dense US cities with good transit have shopping streets, not shopping malls. They're structured more like Yorkville with outdoor storefronts instead of indoor malls and lots of foot traffic and nearby public transit. The cities with big malls are all in really car-focused areas, which limits how busy they get.

This list of the largest malls in the USA shows that they are all in suburban areas, which limits how busy they can get. If Toronto was part of the US, it would be the third largest city, so having a giant shopping mall in the heart of a very large city would result in it being the busiest.

Americans, in general, have less tolerance for crowds/lines, so they would have built another mall in the general area to take some of the load off Eaton Center.
